Bite of Bénin

Brad Herring, Adé Carrena

For Raleigh, North Carolina chef Adé Carrena, who was adopted from her homeland of Bénin at the tender age of 10, home is an irrevocable condition. Home is a place she is continually being directed toward. In this beautiful, and at times painful, story, Adé travels back home to understand her African heritage and reclaim her identity through food.
