What’s the secret to preparing delicious, nutritious food rooted in love? In this episode, Ruben welcomes a chef like no other — one you may have seen standing next to Gordon Ramsey and Richard Blais.
Chef Nyesha Arrington, a Southern California native who has been featured on a variety of high-profile media outlets for her accomplishments in the culinary industry, enters the Live Through Love studio to discuss love and food.
Nyesha contends that food, aside from being a necessity, is “the ultimate connector.” It is something that brings people together in one space and transcends any notion of race or creed. Food itself carries with it a unique heritage, and one could even say that eating is living history in action.
She goes on to speak about her passion to cook “food that hugs the soul” and how she is working to make healthy eating more widely accessible. One major way Nyesha does this is by educating people — especially People of Color — on how to prepare healthy yet delicious dishes by themselves without breaking the bank.
“Cooking is 100% my love language. Truly, cooking found me. I’m an artist, and food is my medium of self-expression.” - Nyesha Arrington
