Fernay McPherson grew up in the Fillmore of the '80s and '90s, learning to cook from and being inspired by her San Francisco family who had various Texas and Southern roots.
In this podcast, Fernay, who owns and operates Millie Bell's Soul Movement in Emeryville, talks about her childhood and the community she misses (she still lives in the Fillmore). Fernay is a graduate of La Cocina, "a nonprofit working to solve problems of equity in business ownership for women, immigrants and people of color."
Please support Fernay by eating at her restaurant. She celebrates her one-year anniversary on March 19, and trust us—it's really good!
Over the next few months, you'll hear from other women who've been through La Cocina's program. Stay tuned!
We recorded this podcast at Public Market Emeryville in February 2019.
