Cat chefs by noted painter Gloria West.
In 2004, Cat took her advocacy role to the next level by founding Chefs for Humanity in response to the epic Asian Tsunami disaster. Inspired by Doctors Without Borders, Chefs for Humanity was created as a way to bring the culinary community together in an effort to raise awareness and provide resources for educational, emergency and hunger-related causes.
Visiting chefs include Cat Cora ("Iron Chef America"), Antonia Lofaso ("Top Chef") and Celina Tio (James Beard Foundation's 2007 Best Chef for the Midwest).
