What motivated me to start the business:
This started as a hobby and turned into a passion. I used to be a terrible cook. Pretty much did my growing up alone and had no idea how to cook even though I loved and craved home cooked meals all the time.
I took the decision to learn professionally 3 years ago even though by then I had mastered the basics, I knew I still needed to get that indepth knowledge. Simply put I wanted to amaze each and every person that tasted my cooking!
I got tutored all right but I know that in cooking, no one person knows it all and I learn and still improve by the day. Expanding my knowledge of Nigerian meals engineered the idea of cooking professionally. Plus I was getting too many compliments and offers of partnerships from people who ate my food. Lol.
I decided to take my passion to the next level and I’m happy I did.
Space! No kitchen ever seems big enough for me. I want to own the biggest kitchen ever but I know that has got to come with a big house so for now space is a challenge.
And then photographs. I’m very hands on in the kitchen as I don’t have any assistant, so taking pictures proves to be a chore I remember but once in a while and I know that in this time and age, pictures are everything!
Advice to people starting my kind of business:
You have to stay strong and focused. Form a style and be unique. Yes the cooking market is saturated in Nigeria but don’t let that slow you.
No one chef can feed the entire nation. I started small and I’m gradually climbing. Understand that your job will be stressful, demanding, sweaty and ache-laden but also every free time you grab you’re going to have to invest in expanding your knowledge of marketing strategies online and also keeping up with the big wigs in the cooking industry.
Make the food channel your best friend and never stop learning. My point is, there are no breaks. No free time and no resting period. You will cook because first you have a passion for it and second, people will always need to eat.
Keep your meals tasty, aesthetically pleasing and your kitchen clean. I promise you will be so engrossed in the fun of giving these happy meals, you won’t even notice when you become a big star.
In every meal you cook always remember the first basic ingredient ;love. You have to love cooking. It is the only way and the one unspoken rule of all chefs worldwide.
