Chef Monica Smith
Chef Monica Smith is a celebrity chef and a native of Gastonia, North Carolina.
She talks to Delia about the variety of Creole ingredients that can be used to create lighter and healthier meals and most importantly, how she enjoys bringing families back to the table.
Chef Monica is making her farm to fork concept a reality with her #Eat2Livelonger Campaign sharing with families how to cook more with fresh ingredients. Her recipes target how to eat better so to combat chronic illnesses and diseases. She has challenged herself to taking classic southern dishes and making them a little lighter with fresh foods and fusing them with other cuisines.
She learned the true meaning of eating together when she reached “rocked bottom” in her personal life and instead of comfort eating she used food in a healthy way to return her to happiness.
