Chef Zoe Adjonyoh is a writer and cook from South-East London. Her pop-up restaurant and supper club has been making waves in the foodie scene – both in London and Berlin – bringing traditional and contemporary Ghanaian food to an audience outside of the Ghanaian community. Zoe appears at street food markets, pop-ups, and festivals across Europe, as well as providing cookery classes and being an established event caterer.
Mavis-Jay Sanders has cooked at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Blue Hill, and Untitled in New York later became part-owner of the award-winning food truck Pico House in Los Angeles. Chef Sanders returned to New York as the Director of Operations at The Brownsville Community Culinary Center and in 2019, she was honored as one of Star Chefs’ New York Rising Star Chef. She is a James Beard Chef’s Boot Camp alum, a Chef’s Collaborative scholar, and is frequently a featured chef of the New York’s Queer Soup Night. She is now a co-founder of Food Plus People, an organization celebrating black culture and community through food.
Sicily Sierra has always been fascinated by how food and people intersect and how meals turn into a tradition. She followed that desire and enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu’s culinary arts program. Sicily and her mother co-founded Pinky & Red’s as part of La Cocina’s incubator program. After working for The Cooking Project, teaching young people valuable cooking skills, she worked at Reem’s in the Bay area. Today, Sicily wants to create food that fosters a space for the community to come together to enjoy one another’s company over dishes that are an ode to her ancestry, an edible piece of culture deeply tied to place and family
Jollof Risotto with Baobab Prawns is the April recipe!
