Sharing meals is a great way to share culture, build relationships, and break down barriers. For Louisiana native @LindaT_G, it's a form of diplomacy. Learn more about her story — and check out her fantastic gumbo recipe here!

Loved all the questions last week re: your new kitchen gear from the holidays! Belinda Howell requested a recipe that uses a ravioli press & I have the perfect dish for you. These Ayib & Sweet Potato Ravioli from The Rise are delicious & easy to make!

One of the bright young stars from @RoosterHarlem is @ChefTianaGee. She's an ambitious chef who happens to be the inspiration behind a dish from #TheRiseIsHere! You can watch her make Chicken and Shrimp Tamarind Broth with Rice Noodles here: #wecookwerise

Melkam Genna! For Ethiopian Christmas we'll be feasting on some of our favorite dishes including Zaza's Doro Wat Rigatoni. Make a big batch of chicken stew & then you can serve the leftovers with Injera for another delicious meal option. Recipes can be found in The Rise.

The first time I met the late legendary Black restaurateur and civil rights activist Leah Chase, she told me, “Whatever you do, aim high. Keep pushing. Keep teaching.” I aimed to do that with The Rise and hope I made her proud. #happybirthday #restinpower #wecookwerise
