This invention has won her numerous national and international awards and accolades. Over Mexican comfort food, Gitanjali shares the basics of innovation and creativity and inspires us all to look more closely at big world problems in a more resourceful way.

About To Dine for with Kate Sullivan:

If you ask someone to name their favorite restaurant, you're likely to get a revealing answer.

TO DINE FOR WITH KATE SULLIVAN uses this very question as a foundation for a conversation with an array of bright and innovative minds.

In this new series, four-time Emmy Award-winning journalist Kate Sullivan accompanies 10 different guests to their favorite restaurants.

They experience the atmosphere, the location, the ambience, and eat what they love.

Over dinner, Kate's guests - entrepreneurs, change agents, musicians, actors, newsmakers and others - discuss their early lives, their struggles, their successes, the American dream, and how they have tried to achieve it.

This season, Kate travels to Seattle to meet with Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks.

While there they dine at Mamnoon, a Middle Eastern restaurant known for flavors so good "they'll make you cry." Then, she flies to Chicago to visit with Nike designer Jason Mayden, who grew up on the South Side of the city.

Jason takes her to Giordano's Deep Dish pizza to tell her why he loves Chicago, and how it fueled his imagination and dreams.
