Notes: At it’s most basic; quarantine is a strategy of separation, containment and isolation — the creation of a hygienic boundary between two or more things, for the purpose of protecting one from exposure to the other. Typically, quarantine is thought of in the context of disease control. But quarantine should not be considered only in that context. Hence our exploration of its myriad applications, culinary among them.
