Chef Fatmata Binta launches the Global Chefs Challenge with a recipe using fonio. In 2022, Chef Binta became the first African to receive the Basque Culinary World Prize, recognizing her culinary practice that is rooted in the Fulani people's cooking traditions in West Africa. She set up the Fulani Kitchen Foundation supporting women farmers and their cultivation of fonio as a crop that is nutritious, resilient to climate change and one that can bring an additional source of income. Chef Binta is a strong promoter of the International Year of Millets 2023.
