    Tune in to hear this live podcast recording in front of an audience at The Civic Kitchen in San Francisco, which was recorded during our annual cookie swap.

She was named the 2019 “Chef to Watch” by Eater and a Best New Chef by Food & Wine and awarded the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Culinary Arts. After serving her Cambodian dishes in various pop-ups, she opened Nyum Bai, which was quickly named one of the best restaurants in the country by several publications. “More importantly,” cookbook author Samin Nosrat writes about Nite for the TIME 100 Next list, “she is changing America’s relationship to Cambodia, one exquisite dish at a time.”
    Nafy Flatley is the founder of TERANGA, which produces a range of products—from juices to popsicles—that use the baobab superfood of her native Senegal. Nafy grew up enjoying baobab and visiting her grandparents’ village, which surrounded a large baobab tree. A graduate of the University of San Francisco, where she studied marketing and international business, Nafy initially worked in the tech industry. When he first baby was born, prematurely, she quit her job to better care for her family. Later, she turned to food and founded TERANGA in 2017. Today, TERANGA is the only U.S. company to sell bottled baobab fruit juice.
