I was born in Sierra Leone (West Africa) but grew up in the U.K. My mum is a chef, and my dad taught me how to season and cook meat. I create meals by fusing ingredients from Africa, the Caribbean, and southern America to create unique meals busting with vibrant fresh ingredients and high-quality perfectly cooked meat. I put my own twist on popular traditional meals from each region to give customers a full food tour of Afro-fusion cuisine.
I'd never come across the idea of Afro-Fusion before. But what a good idea -- I loved the layers and layers of flavour complexity in this dish (tho it might be too fiery for some) and the lamb was tasty and tender and the potatoes nice and crispy. Tracy U.
