A message from Chef Atem:
“Hello! I am Atem, I am from Crossriver, a state in Nigeria. I learned how to cook from my mum because my dad usually placed emphasis on the girl child in the family knowing how to cook. My favourite spices are chili and seasoning cubes. I never really liked cooking that much until I found out a little secret: food is the spice of life. A mixture of varieties, blends, textures, tastes of seasonings and flavours to give you a pleasant dish. I love traveling, learning something new, and I see it as an opportunity to try lots of new meals and flavours from new places.”
