I hate Celery....but have just fallen in love with Celeriac. This weekend, I made everything Celeriac - celeriac mash with red wine poached pears and venison, celeriac soup with bacon,carrots and onions (using the leftover mash) and this warming, fresh salad of Celeriac and Apple! I love it. I served it with toasted french bread a la baguette slices and salt-baked sardines —Kitchen Butterfly

For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
