We LOVE food, who doesn’t? For habesha diaspora in particular, food makes up a major part of our culture and identity. Hence, we could not be happier to kick off our series of episodes on food with an interview with Chef Gueli. Gueli is a passionate vegan chef who’s made a big splash in the DC area and Atlanta. Her story is one about passion, hard work and determination. She left our mouths watering and our hearts inspired.
