Katherine Atmadiredja – daughter, wife, mother and entrepreneur – is the founder of My Turn To Host (MYTH), an establishment that aims to spread the joy of preparing and sharing delightful wholesome meals while entertaining family and friends in a holistic environment. The simple yet singular satisfactions of preparing good food and being a good host remind one of the importance of the inimitable touch of the human hand in an increasingly digital world.
Food is more than mere sustenance for the body. Food is a gift from nature that ought to be appreciated and treated with respect. It is also something that brings people together, be it strangers or family and friends, in joyous thankfulness for a lovingly made meal. Katherine has known this since she was old enough to help her mother in the kitchen. Together, they prepared delicious home-cooked meals using recipes handed down over generations in a family that included 16 aunts and uncles. She continues the tradition today with her own husband and two daughters.
