Chef Noori cooking

How do you preserve your culture when integration is a primary focus of resettlement?

For Chef Hamidullah Noori, he expresses his Afghan culture through food and poetry.  But it's not just a lifestyle for Noori, it's his livelihood as well. In the spring of 2019, Chef Noori opened The Mantu, a high scale Afghan restaurant featuring specialty dishes from his homeland.

We follow Chef Noori as he launches his “American dream” and, with laser-sharp focus, does what he can to keep it alive.
