The sharing of food has always been part of the human story. Food is an enjoyable experience and I love that it helps bring people together in our homes, communities and globally! Food is the ingredient that ties family memories together.⠀
“Food Is A Universal Language That People From Any Part Of The World Can Relate To And Enjoy” – Chef Marc Marrone
Cooking is therapeutic for me. I love to put some good music on and dance or singalong at the top of my lungs. I love being creative in the kitchen when it comes to recipe developing but I used to find recipe writing tedious, still do.⠀
I grew up in a Nigerian household where my mum just knew how to throw ingredients together, eyeballing ingredients to create delicious home-cooked meals. That’s how the magic happened in the kitchen. This made me so used to cooking without really measuring things and somehow I got it right (well most of the time). ⠀
As I’ve gotten older, I understand the importance of having recipes written down. That’s why as part of my food recipe development process I do a lot of research, drafting the recipe, trial and error, recipe testing a few times, then writing the final recipe. It’s a process and I’m still learning!⠀
A recipe is like an SOP (standard operating procedure), it communicates the ingredients and procedures the chef uses so that you all can make the creations. A recipe that includes nutritional information is so important as well. ⠀
But one of the most powerful things we can do while we’re at home is to document our family recipes because it keeps part of the legacy of our relatives and loved ones alive. Those are the kind of recipes that feel like home to us! Let’s start preserving our family recipes, even if it starts with you!
I’m a food lover who loves solo & group travelling, adventures, developing recipes inspired by diverse global tastes and connecting with locals when I travel. One of the many things I love about travelling is discovering the unique food that each country has to offer and embracing new palates.
This is why I’m excited to present the #FoodTravelSeries. This series features special guests from around the world, taking you on culinary experiences! They will be sharing delicious recipes from their home countries. The #FoodTravelSeries is available to you on here, on IGTV and Youtube.
