It boggles my mind that Cat Cora has her own cookware. Other than graduating from CIA (which anyone can easily do), what accomplishments does she have PRIOR to her TV fame?
She has no actual qualifications as a chef. The only information I could find on her is some work under 2 chefs in NY and a little in France for a year or so. She's basically a Food Network created spokeswoman.
Knowing this, why would anyone want to buy cookware endorsed by her?
Here's a quote from Ed Hardy:
"Chef Cora? Let’s talk about “Chef” Cora. She’s not a chef. Not by a longshot. She’s a media creation. True, she was sous chef at the Old Chatham Sheepherding Company Inn for a year (now closed) and was Chef de Cuisine at Bistro Don Giovanni for, like, half a year. But from that to Iron Chef? Nada. She’s deliberately kept her career off her bio because there isn’t anything there. We deserve better. She’s not qualified to judge toast, much less pasta. And, before my wife jumps on me for being harsh to Lady Chefs, let me repeat that some of the best chefs I’ve worked with in the business are women. Missy Robbins at A Voce, Meg Grace at The Redhead, Melinda Bradley at Canon Seattle, Melissa Close at Palladio — I’ve been honored to work with them all. Cat Cora? Not so much."
