American And Global Cuisine, Cocktails, Baked Goods
  • Ceara believes food is an essential component of popular culture. The history and usage of ingredients, brands, and categories shape people's appreciation for different parts of the world.
  • The U.S. is a beautiful blend of various walks of life, making American cuisine a unique mix of elements inspired by global society. American foods tend to have serendipitous origins. Ceara is passionate about researching and sharing these stories.
  • She believes that beverages — particularly cocktails, beer, wine, coffee, tea, and soft drinks — are works of art that create incomparable feelings of camaraderie and conviviality.
