Victor Albisu grew up in Northern Virginia, the son of a Cuban father and a Peruvian mother. After attending George Mason University, he set out on a career in international development – one that he later abandoned to pursue his dreams to become a chef. His restaurants in the Washington region are thriving, but he’s also using food as an avenue to contribute to the issues that interested him earlier in his career: poverty, international aid and diplomacy. He joins Kojo in the studio to chat about food, identity and culinary diplomacy.
