“My vision was to bring together unrepresented chefs and bakers, support them, help them grow their business,” Aneesah Smith, founder of the Black Food & Dessert Expo, said, “and really celebrate in the form of a showcase, which we do two times a year. It’s kind of shifted a little bit because of COVID so, less people, less vendors, but we still really get to support these amazing businesses and find out how we can all win together.”
