A friend of mine recently reached out to me saying that he wanted to connect me with a woman… he knew we would get along great and would have a lot to talk about. He was not wrong, the first time we spoke on the phone we talked for 3 hours. I absolutely love her perspective on food, she asks the most incredible questions- that really leave you yearning to dig deep into your soul- and gives a thoughtful/sincere answer. Funny enough, we are both married to men named Michael. Needless to say, I understand completely why this was a great friend connection. If there was one person I could go on a food vacation with, it would be Khatira. I know we could eat our way through any city in the world. I hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as I have.

Make your sauces ahead of time that way you can dress anything in seconds and instantly it looks like you spent hours.

I use to be addicted to coffee until I said “I should be healthier” so now I’m addicted to tea so pretty much the same problem.

Tell us about a kitchen nightmare
I was having friends over and making miso salmon. The doorbell rang as I put the salmon in the oven under the broiler. We got caught up talking at the front door (armature move) next thing you know the oven is on fire so I ran took the salmon out that was in flames bc of the sugar and alcohol content that I panicked and threw it outside where we were sampling fake grass patches so then they all went into flames. I feel like every kitchen nightmare somehow involves flames.

I don’t watch cooking shows that teach you how to cook rather more interview base shows like Anthony Bourdain, cooked, chefs table or salt, fat, acid.
