Several Celebrities were in attendance for the YWCA Black & White Benefactrix Ball in Beverly Hills including former NBA player Doug Christie, Wendy Raquel Robinson (Steve Harvey/The Game) and many others. Look for video interviews featuring these stars and more when http://multiculturalcooking.net officially launches in mid November. However, we thought we would share one exclusive interview with the lovely Nautica De La Cruz popular Los Angeles radio personality of 102.3 Radio free KJLH. Erika L. Holmes of the upcoming entertainment & food news news show What’s the Dish reports:
ERIKA(MCCN): If it is alright with you we are going to talk about food.
NAUTICA: Oh good, I love food…and handbags.
Erika: Me too, but let’s talk about food first. What’s your favorite dish?
Nautica: Well, I am half Puerto Rican…
Erika: So am I.
Nautica: Really (Smiling) I am half Puerto Rican and I am half Jamaican so I love anything that has to do with tropical food. My favorite is Arroz Morro… Also a nice steak with lots of onions and garlic.
Erika: Yummy. Do you know how to make all that?
Nautica: I do. The morro I am not good at but the black beans I can break a leg on.
(Arroz Morro/Cuban Congri)
MCCN– Thanks Nautica!
