I really enjoy cooking.
Food is one of my greatest pleasures. I unabashedly love food. I have moved around a bit, spending time in Nigeria, England and U.S., and I find that food is what makes me feel at home. As much as I love eating food local to the place, I enjoy cooking local ingredients even more.
I currently live in Boston and I work at a grocery store that sells really awesome food. My job means I spend my whole day around food and that has really had an impact on my relationship with food.
I find that I am more adventurous with my vegetables now. Although I have been eating my veggies for a while now, I am more interested in trying different options now. I have been definitely moving towards eating less meat and diary.
This blog has also been an inspiration to my cooking because I'm more excited to try new foods so that I can share them here. I have written about food intermittently in the past. I have never really had a blog dedicated to food though. It is interesting for me to really focus on my passion for foods here.
If you are interested in learning more about my food journey, you can read the essay that I wrote back in 2011. I had the idea that I wanted to do a food magazine and wrote this essay on my food evolution.
