Chef Aminata Dia was born in Senegal before moving to France at a young age. Growing up just outside of Paris, she found a passion for food when she was quite young. She moved to the United States nearly 20 years ago and has been in Denver for 15 years. Once in Colorado, Aminata followed her love of food by pursuing a degree from the Art Institute of Colorado. From there, she launched her own successful catering company, AmiCuisine.
Drawing on her French, Senegalese and American culinary experiences, Chef Aminata is proud to open her first restaurant, Le French, alongside her sister, Chef Rougui Dia – a dream come true for both sisters.
