Dionot, who’s from France, sought out Nephi Craig. Craig is among the few Native American chefs across the United States. He creates dishes using ingredients from his Navajo and Apache cultures. Dionot says he first learned of Craig several months ago.
Dionot said, "I was absolutely fascinated about what he wants to do.”
So the two united in creating a cooking course that will blend their expertise and create new dishes using Native American ingredients like beans, corn, squash, and blue corn meal.
