CHICAGO — On a cold December in 1983, a young lady from Sampaloc, Manila landed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport to join her family and start a new life here.
Last Friday, April 23, she flew in from Washington D.C. and was warmly greeted as a homecoming hero; an American success story.
White House Executive Chef Cristeta Pasia Comerford returned to her adopted city, to speak at an Earth Day event at Northwestern University.
Combining inspiration and motivation, Comerford talked about running the White House kitchen, while stressing the importance of local food sourcing and healthy eating.
