Chef Aminata Dia was born in Senegal, before moving to France at a young age. Growing up just outside of Paris, she discovered a passion for food when she was quite young. She moved to the United States 23 years ago and has been in Denver for 20 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 was proud to open her first restaurant, Le French, alongside her sister, Chef Rougui Dia, in 2019, a dream come true for both sisters.
A second location of Le French is slated to open this fall in Denver’s 9+CO development.
