Faces Of Food


Breaking Food Barriers - with Chef Ali L'artiste

Season 1, Ep. 5

Ali Said Mandhry, popularly known as Chef Ali L’artiste – a Kenyan Celebrity Chef, TV/Radio personality and culinary instructor, is today's guest. Ali’s love of food came early: he began cooking at the age of seven and by the time he’d turned 12, he had his own business selling cakes. Today Ali champions Kenyan cuisine both nationally and internationally, and is part of IFAD's Recipes for Change campaign, which raises awareness about the impacts of climate change on food crops and traditional recipes. He came to the EAT Stockholm Food Forum as a representative of the Chef’s Network, a global network of chefs who are working to create a better food system for all. We talked to him about gender stereotypes in the culinary arts, breaking food barriers and empowering small-scale farmers.
