This is what we love to see! New Orleans’ own Chase Cassine was featured in Essence for his mental health themed cook book!
We’ve been covering Chase for a minute now and it seems like he’s just getting started! Essence is a huge deal in New Orleans and to see one of our own featured for something that benefits the lives of so many people is a blessing in itself!
Chase Cassine lost his mother to breast cancer. He spent time being his mother’s caretaker along with his sister. Trying to return to his daily work as a therapist wasn’t fulfilling and he sought out solutions. He came across baking and decided to give that a try. After learning how to bake from scratch, he was surprised by how much it helped him.
This led him to writing “The Sweetest Therapy”, a cookbook that sold over 1,500 copies the first week! He was also recently honored by the National Association of Social Workers for the work he’s done in the space.
