picture: scrumptious flavors

As a well-travelled, fun-loving and experienced chef in international cuisine, my passion for healthy foods and cooking started at a very young age. Since I can remember, I have always loved being in the kitchen. Whether it was helping my mother prepare food ingredients or acting as her second pair of taste buds, I was always by her side learning the fundamentals on how to prepare delicious healthy meals.

Also, as a young child, I was surrounded by healthy and organic foods. My father, a health nut and an agriculturist with master’s degrees in food science and a PhD in Pomology (The study of fruit science), owned about five big commercial farms across Africa. We raised and ate our own organic fruits and vegetables, grains, livestock etc. and also, exported some of the organic foods that we cultivated overseas. My parents inculcated in me from a very young age that the best medicine is a clean and healthy meal free of preservatives, hormones and chemicals.

As I grew older, I continued my experimentation with cooking and over the years, I mastered the characteristics of various food types and how they can be combined to create scrumptious and healthy meals…..even with minimal ingredients. For me, cooking is a combination of art, science, creativity and self-expression. My passion for healthy foods has led me to create my food website – Scrumptious Flavors and my goal for this website is threefold:

  • Teach you how to cook simple, healthy and delicious meals that will nourish and energize your body
  • Share my mind-blowing innovative recipes and food experiences from around the world with you
  • Take your favorite recipes and teach you how to make a healthier version of them without compromising taste

Besides founding Scrumptious Flavors, I attended Cornell University where I studied Applied Economics and Management. Also, I have an extensive experience and expertise working as a digital marketing strategist (My day job). Nonetheless, food is and always will be my passion.

Join me on this scrumptious journey and I look forward to interacting with you and reading your comments/feedback.

Thank you for visiting Scrumptious Flavors.

Cheers!
