The Ultimate Nigerian-Italian Fusion Dinner Series with Chef Tayo

We are launching a new and exciting dinner series that brings together the robust, hearty flavors of Italian food and the lively, spicy tastes of Nigerian cuisine with Chef Tayo

Chef Tayo, skilled and passionate about both food cultures, has crafted a 4-course family-style menu blending Nigerian and Italian dishes to tantalize your taste buds. Tayo deeply values family-style dining as a way to foster community and connection through food. To elevate your dining experience, each dish is paired with specially selected wines that highlight its unique flavors.

In addition to offering a delightful culinary experience, this event also supports a meaningful cause. We’re proud to contribute a portion of our proceeds to the Jikoni Recipe Archive, a non-profit dedicated to preserving and celebrating the diverse food traditions of Africa. This organization collects and shares stories from cooks past and present, showcasing Africa’s rich culinary heritage.

By attending our dinner series, you will not only enjoy fantastic meals but also support Jikoni Recipe Archive’s valuable work. This dinner series is throughout the month of October and seats are limited, so reserve yours today! (Link’s in the bio)

We look forward to sharing delicious wine, incredible food, and the significant contributions of African cuisine to the culinary world with you. Join us for an evening filled with delightful dishes and memorable moments!

See you at the chef’s table! 🎉🍴
