Have You Eaten Yet?

Have You Eaten Yet?

We all experience a unique journey when it comes to food. But what about looking at food and the path of creative individuals in the world ? In Have You Eaten Yet, host Kassata Bollman talks with thought-leaders from around the world about their journey to the present moment. Every person takes part in the daily practice of eating. Food has the power to evoke memories and emotions. We honor and embrace that concept during these conversations. It’s through these open and honest discussions that guests explain how they overcome challenges, connect with a deeper sense of self and navigate life. The combination of looking back, standing in the present moment and envisioning the future, leads to universal lessons that help all of us navigate life.
