I learned to cook from my grandmother who worked in the Ethiopian palace for Halle Selassi I, emperor for Ethiopia from 1930-1974. I have wonderful memories of growing up in the palace living in harmony with my aunties and friends who all took care of me as a young girl. At the elbow of my grandmother in the palace kitchen, I learned to use all my senses to create traditional healthy and nourishing meals for my larger community.
I am excited to share my Ethiopian culture and my tasty food with our community. I am passionate about searching out the best local ingredients from area farms, such as Plowshare Farm.
I am committed to sharing my food with a Zero Waste goal, which is why you will find most of my dishes in returnable glass jars. I trust you to return them to me for continued use!
Try my cooking: There is much love and joy - and flavor - in each bite!
