This immigrant's main job was always as a dishwasher.

Sonko immigrated to Denmark 34 years ago from his native Gambia, and is now part of the proud team of three that will manage Noma’s reopening in December. The location where they functioned for 14 years was closed, and will become from now on an "urban farm".

Chef Rene Redzepi said "Ali is the heart and soul of Noma," adding that "he is all smiles, no matter how his 12 children fare.”
