Erik: What allows you to be so open and accepting of different food cultures?
00:10 to 00:42
Cathy: I’m just really fascinated in home cooked food from all different cultures and exploring that more and the only way to do that is by going to homes. I think a lot of people are scared or intimidated when they go to an ethnic restaurant. Maybe they think that the sanitary levels aren’t good enough. Maybe the staff doesn’t speak your language, or you’re just unfamiliar. So, I think a good way, if that’s a concern of yours, is to try to cook the food yourself.
00:42 to 00:46
Erik: Yeah, that’s a great point. By doing that you can get over that fear or that uncertainty…
00:46 to 01:29
Cathy: And you’ll have a better knowingness of what you’re eating. You be like “Oh, this has cumin in it. Oh, yum!” And maybe you’ll be like “Hey, I can make that too.” Pick up a cookbook on Moroccan cooking or something and you get to experience a new culture through food. I have a good friend who is a food writer and he grew up in the Midwest and somewhere where the food was pretty basic, American, very simple. He just had a fascination with other cultures, other places, but didn’t get to travel much. When he was younger, he use to just hear about Chinese food or something and would get cookbooks, or do some research, or go to the library and then try to make it at home. So we have all the resources in the world to do that.
01:30 to 01:43
Erik: It’s surprising, but what you’ve done is making cooking approachable for the masses and reemphasized that cooking at home seven nights a week isn’t suppose to be gourmet, it’s suppose to be functional…
01:43 to 01:49
Cathy: Right, you don’t have to have all the steps or all the pieces that a restaurant kitchen might have, but you can use whatever pieces you have in your kitchen and make that simple, practical meal.
