For many of you out there, the coronavirus pandemic has meant a lot more cooking and screen time—killing the hours at home baking sourdough bread and binge-watching Tiger King. Well, tomorrow, Amazon is prepared to give you plenty of both food and television in a celebrity chef-studded event that also supports a good cause—and hopefully will provide some easy-to-make recipes in the process.

From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET tomorrow (April 23), Amazon Live—the online giant's free streaming hub sometimes described as their version of the Home Shopping Network—will be showing a 10-hour cook-a-thon called At Home Cooking featuring 14 celebrity chefs streaming "pantry-friendly recipes" from their home kitchens.

The lineup—listed in order of appearance with their start time—is Matt Adlard & Chelsey White (10 a.m.), Padma Lakshmi (11 a.m.), Carla Hall & Billy Porter (noon), Marcus Samuelsson (1 p.m.), Rocco DiSpirito (2 p.m.), Gaby Dalkin (3 p.m.), Laila Ali (4 p.m.), Eden Grinshpan (5:15 p.m.), Hannah Bronfman (6 p.m.), Elizabeth Chambers (6:30 p.m.), Emeril Lagasse (7 p.m.), and Danny Trejo (7:30 p.m.). Most chefs will be on for one hour except for the final four which will have 30 minute slots.

The event—which is sponsored by Kellogg's and will raise money to support the non-profit hunger relief organization Feeding America—is described by Amazon as chefs "showing you how to cook with items commonly found in the pantry, helping with meal prep tips, recipe inspiration, and answering questions in a live Q&A." Additionally, "Links for each recipe will be included with the stream, so viewers can cook with their favorite chefs in real-time or save the recipes for later."

Amazon says the cook-a-thon is "available to anyone in the U.S. by visiting Amazon.com/live on desktop, mobile, Fire tablet, or via the Amazon Shopping App on compatible Fire TV streaming devices." The live stream will also include a link to learn more about Feeding America—which is especially in need of help as their nationwide network of food banks works to feed people in need during this COVID-19 crisis.
