Cat Cora's Kitchen

PRESS - Cat Cora in the Press




The 5 o'clock question "What's for dinner?" may stir dread in most working moms, but for Ali Baird there's an additional hurdle; finding her favorite spatula.

"For celebrity chef Cat Cora, Oscar night's main attraction will have nothing to do with the Best Picture category. Instead, the restauranteur, Hidden Valley spokeswoman and co-host of Bravo's upcoming Around the World in 80 Plates, 44, will be hard at work preparing a five-course meal for the Elton John Aids Foundation's 20th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party at the West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles.

On the menu: Sesame encrusted lamb meatballs with harissa yogurt, sautéed sea bass with lemon couscous and piquillo pepper saffron sauce, and chocolate budino with whipped cream and fresh berries..."
