Fatima Ali

At 18, Fatima Ali left her hometown in Pakistan for NYC with the dream of becoming a chef and has never looked back. When she landed in the Big Apple, her culinary career took off, and she eventually accepted an offer to be a contestant on Top Chef (after turning it down the first time). In this episode we will explore her restaurant story, how being on Top Chef affected her career, and how she is handling her most recent challenge: treatment for the rare cancer Ewing’s Sarcoma and how her diagnosis could impact her plans for the future.
