One of the people Lidia met while making her special Flavors That Define Us was Toyin Alli. Alli's recipe, 'Chicken 'n Beef Andouille Sausage Gumbo' was one of the dishes served at the celebratory potluck dinner held at Immigrant Food in downtown Washington D.C. Toyin explains to Lidia, "My father is from Nigeria, and my mother is African-American. My dad basically brought five recipes with him from Nigeria, and we made those often. We also blended in my mother’s Southern cooking, and this dish represents my blended heritage."
