Join the Activities Board, a student-run organization that brings programming to campus, for a virtual cooking session and Q&A with Chef Sohla El-Waylly. 

Sohla El-Waylly can currently be seen starring in The HISTORY® Channel’s online series Ancient Recipes with Sohla. In each episode, Sohla takes the food you know and love and traces it back to its origins detailing the surprising history of fan-favorite dishes as she attempts to recreate the original version using historical cooking techniques and ingredients.

This year, Sohla was included in the TIME100 Sohla is also currently one of the first-ever Resident Experts for Food52 with Off Script with Sohla, her curated monthly online column and video series. The series lives on Food52’s website, YouTube and OTT channels. She is also a contributor to The New York Times Cooking vertical.

Sohla notably rose to prominence from her integral role on the Bon Appetit “Test Kitchen” YouTube channel. Amidst allegations of racism and unequal pay brought against Bon Appetit in 2020, Sohla spoke out about the publication’s treatment of people of color and lack of equitable pay. She ultimately parted ways with the company. Sohla’s voice sparked the movement for more diverse representation in culinary media and forged the way for other BIPOC cast members to speak out and be heard.
