3 Reasons to Travel with Cat Cora
We love Cat for never sitting still. Her can-do, roll-up-her-sleeves spirit has transformed her into a pioneering chef and TV personality, and inspires everyone she meets with a belief that if you work hard, anything is possible. Growing up in a Greek-American family in Mississippi, food has always been in Cat’s DNA. Restless early on, she asked Julia Childs for advice, then followed it by studying at a New York culinary institute. She later became the first-ever woman in the kitchen of a Michelin-star restaurant in Burgundy (which we'll visit on this trip) and a beloved TV personality (you’ve surely seen her on Iron Chef, Good Morning America, and the Food Network). She’s far from settled. We can’t wait to see what’s next.
She's All In
Cat calls herself “an all-in kind of girl.” When she didn’t see women on cooking shows, she became one. She’s since opened more than 18 restaurants worldwide.
Cat was about health and wellness back when health and wellness weren't cool. Keeping your “orbit” around you is key to being positive and healthy. “There’s a vibrational energy around you that’s important for your soul and who you are.”
Cat thinks about the joy of food every day, but realizes some people think about any food. After the devastating 2004 tsunami in Asia, she co-founded Chefs for Humanity to help feed a world in need.
