DALLAS — We’re living in tough times. Not only here in Texas, not only here in America, but all over the world. People are hurting.
When I watched the tragedy unfold in Dallas earlier this month, it felt like I was there. It was happening in my backyard. In my city. A city I’m proud of, a city that I’ve cooked in, and cooked for, for years.
I’ve cooked for Dallas officers, for the journalists, for the protesters. Dallas is my family.
The first thing I thought was “I wish I could cook for all of them right now!”
Food is what binds us together. There is nothing on this earth that binds us better than food. It’s the way we tell our stories, it’s the way we share with one another, and it’s the way we see that we are all alike.
The Spice of Blythe is: We need to get around the table, we need to rally around that one thing that we all have in common, and we need to lean on each other for strength. That’s how we’ll get through these hard times, and it’s how we’ll make them brighter. Together.
