I love living in a city which recogises its diverse continental African communities in the way that Washongton, DC does.

The Mayor's Office of African Affairs is celebrating 10 years in existence and I'm proud and happy to be one of the guests.

Food is my passion.  Sharing that passion with others brings me joy.   My cuisine is eclectic yet down home and comforting.  I focus on gourmet comfort food with influences from the American South, Low Country and New Orleans Creole, the Caribbean, French and the West African cuisines of Senegal and Nigeria.  

They call me Culinary Sith Lord, Gastro Sadist, Executive Chef and sometimes even by my name. I'm just here to cook and share my passion for it.
