As COVID-19 continues to impact jobs, families and financial futures worldwide, celebrity chef, author and television personality Cat Cora joins Billy Shore to discuss how this pandemic is exposing our humanity and what the lasting impacts might be. “This is a human recalibration. We’re recalibrating the world. We are more authentic than we’ve ever been… We’re all on a level playing field, and I think that’s a beautiful thing. We needed that as a society,” she says. However, she does also urge government assistance of small restaurants and businesses. “So much support needs to go into small businesses because they really are the quilt of American hospitality. The small mom-n-pop restaurants and small businesses are what keeps America going.”
Cora is involved with various efforts to help people during this difficult time, including supporting the No Kid Hungry campaign through her Chefs for Humanity organization and a new live web series. “[CORA-ntine Cuisine] is our service to the world. We’re cooking dinner anyway, we might as well share it with the world. We can be a hotline to give advice and tips and share recipes and connect,” she explains.
