My food hero is

my auntie,
Eartha
I love it when it's just the two of us in the kitchen. I feel like we can do anything together – we even learned how to make veggie sushi!

My food hero is

my father,
Eric
When my mom passed away 20 years ago, my dad took over as the cook in our house. He always had this value of keeping our family together through food. To this day he still invites us over once a week for a meal.

My food hero is

my mentor,
Lisa
She taught me how to knead bread and make ice cream. But more than that, she taught me that food is community and community is love. She inspired me to become the best baker – and person – I can be.

My food hero is

my friend,
Ghaithaa
When I walk into to her house and I smell her food cooking – there’s cinnamon, and cumin and paprika. The children are playing, there are people talking, and it just makes me feel like I’ve come home.
