In this week's episode, I had the amazing opportunity to talk with Katy Oursler. From her early days on the East Coast to creating impactful food experiences, Katy's story is about more than just meals; it's about connecting people and building community.
Our conversation explored various aspects of Katy's journey. We delved into how she values farmers and their produce, creating a deeper connection between consumers and the source of their food. Katy shared fascinating stories about her improvisational cooking skills, like using fig leaves as dessert plates in a pinch, highlighting the fun and authenticity in such spontaneous moments.
We also discussed the rise of the farm-to-table movement and how people's desire for new food experiences has grown, especially in connecting with those who cook and grow the ingredients. Katy's involvement with World Central Kitchen during crises like the pandemic and natural disasters showcased her proactive approach to supporting local chefs and farms.
Perhaps the most heartening part of our talk was hearing Katy's reflections on pursuing personal goals and projects. Her desire to overcome inhibitions and chase her passions resonates with many of us striving to make our mark in the world.
So, if you're interested in how food can bring people together and create a sense of community, or if you're just looking to be inspired by someone who's making a difference, this episode with Katy is for you.
