  • Ceara believes food plays a major role in popular culture. The history and usage of ingredients, products, and categories help shape our appreciation for different parts and people of the world.
  • The U.S. is a blend of various walks of life, which makes American cuisine a mix of elements inspired from different parts of the world. American foods tend to have serendipitous origins, and she loves to research and share these stories.
  • Beverages, particularly cocktails, are works of art that just so happen to taste amazing and bring about feelings of camaraderie and conviviality.
