I am a cookery writer, broadcaster and cookery school founder, putting African flavours on a global table. I love to teach, and share vibrant recipes from African and beyond, especially inspired by my heritage and travels. My career in food and media has been quite a journey from hosting cookery television shows syndicated across the African continent, becoming the youngest editor at a national newspaper, writing a cookery column for the Guardian ng to creating pioneering and culturally immersive cookery classes in the UK especially at a time when African food was barely a trending topic. I am a regular contributor on the BBC, especially sharing recipes on BBC Sussex & Surrey. I work with a wide range of organisations such as multinationals, educational institutions, charities and food and lifestyle brands to bring sunshine to food lovers.
