Thanks so much to everyone for the support and kind words about #themigrantkitchen #emmy win. We’re always touched when people tell us they‘re fans of the show, and even more, we love hearing stories about their own communities—the immigrants who have shaped their own food scenes, and in many ways, their feelings or perspective on a culture or a people.
At the end of the day, this show is meant to recognize and give a platform to those people. Those who have so much to teach us, about food, about family, about history and about humanity. To put us all in a global context, and to see a world so much bigger than our own.
As @antonio told the Academy in his acceptance speech, it’s an education in empathy, appreciating what others have gone through and how we can and MUST connect with them if we are to rise above. Now more than ever.
Food, on a fundamental level, has that power. But it’s up to all of us to make sure we open those doors—as well as our minds and our hearts—to the world around us, what our neighbors have to offer both on and around the dinner table. When everyone is given an equal seat, we all eat well, and the world is a better place.
If you haven’t seen The Migrant Kitchen, you can watch at the link in my profile. And we’d love to hear about the migrant kitchen heroes in your own hometowns.
