Catherine-KatzCuisinicity is about love, first and foremost. I didn’t realize it then but Cuisinicity was born when I fell in love with my husband a lifetime ago! He, Dr. David Katz, has gone from the aspiring Preventive Medicine resident I met back then, to a world renowned expert in nutrition and disease prevention. We met in an epidemiology class I was auditing at Yale – and the rest, as they say, is history. A whole lot of history!

Medium-Heart I am a French-born-and-raised foodie, and lover of luscious cuisine. But I am also a scientist, earning my PhD in neuroscience at Princeton University. So, when David presented me with the challenge of his very demanding nutrition standards, we realized that his passion for health and my love of French cooking also needed to be wed! And so our “marriage” of priorities resulted in 20 some years of methodical experimentation – but in our warm, lively home kitchen, rather than any neuroscience lab. Over those years, David and I have raised 5 beautiful healthy children together – Rebecca, Corinda, Valerie, Natalia and Gabe (I stopped working as a neuroscientist after Natalia was born) – and all of us have benefited from our shared passion for loving food that loves us back. That’s Cuisinicity! Read more »
