The Nourish series: Re(Creating) Home: Public Discussion and Lunch with Local Senegalese Chef Eric Ndiaye

The Nourish series connects the Duke community with local experts in food and foodways by both bringing students out into the community and bringing community experts to Duke in events that are open to the public.

From Senegal to starred restaurants in France, and on to the Triangle, food has always been Chef Ndiaye's entry into his community, as his culinary traditions and experience allow him to create a new home no matter how far from his first one. What role has food production played in his migrations across the world and how do questions of food, ethnicity, place, and memory intertwine in the production of identity and difference, but also of belonging, that are part of selling Senegalese food in the Durham Farmer's Market and French food for elegant catered events? Students from the Fall 2022 French 308 Manger class will lead the public discussion with Chef Ndiaye, and food will be provided by him to the community.
