Diaspora Food Stories


Oct 26, 2022

Chef Nelson German began his career in New York more than 20 years ago. Born and raised in Washington Heights, as a Latino of Dominican descent, his childhood is filled with memories of watching his mother and grandmother preparing some of his favorite dishes that have inspired the menus at his restaurant alaMar Kitchen & Bar and tapas bar Sobra Mesa.

He appeared on season 18 of Bravo's "Top Chef" and is celebrating the fruits of his labor with several collaborations including Levi's and D. Wade Cellars while continuing to showcase the ingredients, foods and drinks that all lead back to Africa and the African diaspora.
