When you wake up in the morning, can you say you’re proud of what you built? James Beard award-winning Minneapolis chef Ann Kim joins Billy Shore to talk about her immigrant experience, approach to food, and observations about her community in the wake of the George Floyd murder. “It is our job to make changes, educate and learn. We can’t make decisions rooted in fear,” she says. “People scream when they feel like they’re not being heard. I was trying to listen and I wasn’t quite sure how I was to react, except that I wanted to support the black community,” explains Kim.
Kim talks about her immigrant experience and the importance of the dinner table. “There is no room for hate in food. Food is about nurturing and taking care of people. It’s about making people feel special and welcome. It really is the great peacemaker,” says Kim, who is a staunch supporter of No Kid Hungry.
