Her advocacy for women in culinary and sustainable eating is reflected throughout her journey.
Chef Binta is partnering with the lifestyle brand, Afro in CLT, to immerse guests in an interactive 5-course picnic-style dining experience that stimulates the senses and transports them to a whole new world.
