american bistro. >> congrats. >> thank you. that ink you for having me. >> you were the first daughter. did that elevate your palette at any point? >> i just had my dad. we were spoiled. we had every fruit tree, vegetable in the backyard. growing up as a child, it was one of the things where my dad would go into the garden, pick fruit, and make juice for us. we had fresh papaya. having that in the caribbean, i was spoiled. that was the first introduction for me, from farm to table. you can't boo it that. >> and the cooking influence, your granny and your mom. >> my grandmother was in the kitchen every single morning. >> and you used to have bake-offs. >> yes. because my mom loved baking cakes.

5:42 am
in the neighborhood that come to the restaurant, that i can see a familiar neighborhood. we would have -- 75% who come in, i know almost every person in that restaurant. >> that is awesome. >> if you could have this meal past or present, who would it be -- >> it would be -- that's a very easy one. >> your father? you have to tell us. >> it would be my dad and my grandmother. >> you have to sign the dish, forgive me. chef nina compton, thank you so much for sharing your dishes with us. for your more on her and "the dish," head to our website, cbsnews.com. rolling stone praised her pristine voice and named her an artist you need to know. up next in our "saturday sessions," rising star singer madison cunningham performs right here in studio 57. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."
