157 | Courtney Henriette of Katoi on Community, Food and Creating Elevated Experiences [HIGHLIGHT DETROIT]

Today’s episode is a “Highlight Detroit” interview which is fitting since it’s my last week living here. Courtney Henriette is one of the co-owners of one of my favorite restaurants in Detroit called Katoi. About a year ago I started this little mini-series called Highlight Detroit. These episodes feature some of my favorite people in Detroit.  For those of you that are local to Detroit you may know that Katoi had a fire a couple months ago and the restaurant is in transition. Courtney and I sat down at her house in Detroit right after the fire and had a great conversation around so many topics relevant to anyone (not just locals). We talk about creating spaces and events, the importance of community around food, how to make the best of unexpected change and dealing with shakeups in life, the good in people and how that shows up in times of need, body image and wellness practices as a foodie, and much more. I’m so grateful for all of you and I can’t wait to continue to come back to Detroit and share these special episodes highlighting this city and the incredible people that create such a special place.
