CARE Chef Advocate Asha Gomez was featured in the New York Times’ food section, highlighting her recent trip back to her birthplace, Kerala, India – a region that has deeply influenced her cooking and career. “I think I had disconnected myself from this place in some way by saying for so long that the U.S. was home,” said Ms. Gomez, 47, who moved from the Indian state of Kerala to the state of Michigan as a teenager. “There is still so much a part of me here.
