On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer's guest is Diana Tandia, Chef & Owner of Berber Street Food, an African café in NYC’s West Village featuring Afro-fusion cuisine. Diana, who is from Mauritania, Africa, learned with her family that quality of food is an essential for living. She moved to NYC in 2001, and began working as a server in high end restaurants, including Daniel, Per Se, and Brasserie Rulhmann, while attending college; and then went on to study at the French Culinary Institute in 2006, where she developed her own unique style and flair. Diana gained more experience in kitchens, including Daniel, Spice Market, Mandarin Oriental, and Gramercy Tavern. Her culinary philosophy and passion reflects the growing trend toward a healthier and down-to-earth lifestyle. Today's show also features Shari's PR tip to believe in yourself; Speed Round; and Solo Dining experience at Dhamaka at the Essex Market in NYC. Plus, for Industry News, Shari chats with special guest, Lee Brian Schrager, Founder & Director of the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival Presented by Capital One, taking place May 20-23 in South Beach.
