Know more about Cherie Pasion
Who would you love to have dinner with and where?
“I would say Elizabeth Gilbert. I listened to her wonderful interview. She’s the author of Eat Pray Love which I haven’t actually read but I have got Big Magic book that I’m reading at the moment. So I listened to the interview with her and Richard Fidler both have really curious people with curious minds. She sounds like an amazing person to sit down and have a chat too. Just about how she has let creativity and her creativity is really at the hot of feminine energy. That’s how she lives her life. And she hasn’t really let the fame and the big success that she had with the Pray Love impact her with her cores so much. And it would be very hard to talk a book like that but she keeps writing anyway because she loves writing and I would love to. And she is actually fascinated with the masculine. I’m interested in that. Yeah, I would love to have a chat with her about that. I just love to have dinner with her. That would just be an amazing learning opportunity I think.”
“I love being in nature. I wouldn’t mind just having a meal on a picnic or even just sitting on a grass or looking on a beach somewhere. That would be beautiful.”
Last meal on the planet?
“Buffalo wings all the way, with blue cheese. If I see them in menu, half to order them. And I can be disappointed with them. But if they’re done properly with a rub or a marinate, not just cooked in or put in a marinate but properly done. Oh My Gosh, Best food ever. And lemon pepper? Oh beautiful.”
