This week we talk with Ameerah Watson, aka ‘Creole Peach’. Chef Ameerah was born in New Orleans where she received the foundation of her flavoring style. Later in life her mother, who was raised vegetarian, moved the family to Atlanta where Ameerah was primarily raised but still spent her summers in New Orleans.

Seated on a high chair with her small fist curled around a plastic spoon, Ameerah Watson was barely tall enough to see into the pot as she stirred sautéed potatoes on a hot stove. She was only 18-months-old. But she grew to love the sights, sounds, smells and tastes that come with preparing dishes of a modern variety – including Mexican, French, Caribbean, African and Southern.
Watson would watch her mom, aunts and grandmothers cook, southern style in iron skillets, as they prepared dishes made from scratch. On special occasions, the three generations of women piled into one kitchen, exchanging tradition, culture and recipes while the youngest among them soaked it all in.
