Badria is one of the chefs preparing traditional cuisine for our midsummer
event Local Market, Global Table, a multicultural Storytelling and Dinner Benefit
to support the work of CitySeed & Sanctuary Kitchen!
Badria is originally from Omdurman, near Khartoum, Sudan. When the war reached her home, she fled the area
and took a bus over 1,000 miles to a refugee camp in Darfur. A year later, in the fall of 2014, Badria arrived in
New Haven with her husband and three children. Since then, her family has grown with the addition of twin girls.
Badria learned to cook from her mother when she was a child, and enjoyed preparing traditional Sudanese dishes
with her family and friends. Badria is excited to be a part of Sanctuary Kitchen; she is passionate about cooking, loves
to meet new people and share her traditional cuisine with others.
Please join us for this multicultural, storytelling dinner experience featuring
the cuisines of Sanctuary Kitchen chefs from Afghanistan, Sudan and Syria,
and highlighting the fresh Connecticut produce and products from CitySeed’s
market vendors. Purchase tickets here.
Sanctuary Kitchen believes in community and hopes that our programs, while creating income-generating opportunities
for refugee and immigrant chefs, will cultivate authentic connections and facilitate meaningful cultural exchanges
between area residents and our new neighbors.
