MEET THE MAMA
CHEF RUSTEE McCAIN
A native of California, Rustee lived on many continents before settling in America's Midwest to raise her ever-expanding family of children and friends. Food-centric gatherings as well as remodeling, design and film, fashion and photography work continues to bring her around the globe. With a tenacious curiosity, she is a connoisseur of many artistic indulgences; fine art and its history, museums and curated collections, design and construction materials and tools, high fashion, photography business and the international boutique publications circle, travel in its many low-maintenance bohemian forms, and of course global culinary traditions and ingredients, both historic and innovative. When it comes to the food she prepares and serves to the masses, calories are never relevant; it is the hearty original form in which native food elements are used that lead to the greatest enjoyment and health.
