Globacom-sponsored magazine programme, CNN African Voices, will this weekend treat viewers to outstanding African culinary delights as it features Nigeria’s master baker, Uzo Orimalade, and two others.
CNN International said in a statement that the winning recipe needed to become very successful in the food industry requires cooking dexterity complemented by extra factors like endless imagination and an intimate knowledge of how flavours work together.
The other two culinary experts who will join Orimalade in the episode are Kenya’s celebrity chef, Kiran Jethwa, and Morocco’s leading restauranteur, Reda Fakir.
CNN describes Nigeria’s Orimalade as one baker finding sweet success with her Nigerian inspired treats, while Jethwa is said to be drawing on his roots and whipping up delicious dishes for his audience in Nairobi. On the other hand, Fakir, an international DJ-turned-restauranteur, is hoping his restaurant will put Morocco’s capital, Rabat, on the culinary map.
Uzo Orimalade is the Creative Director of Cupcake Couture – a boutique bakery that specializes in creating delicious baked treats as well as Managing Director of Uzo’s Food Labs – a growing Food and Home Entertainment company that offers recreational classes to individuals and companies as well as providing consulting services across several areas to the hospitality industry.
