ABOUT THE CHEF:
Preparing food for one's family is a huge cultural symbol of pride for the women of Burkina Faso, a small west african country. Akin to a right of passage, it is a big part of life for a young woman from her father's country. Though born in America, Yoland Ouiya, known as Yoli, was no exception. Twenty years later, she is known throughout the New York City area for catering for various vegan activist organizations, a brief stint at Reboot restaurant, and servicing a cultural array of clients and festivals.
Chef Yoli Ouiya currently operates a boutique healthy-lifestyle outfit called Ou!ya. She offers rich,colorful meals and food preparation classes.
