“I feel like the Africa has a great heritage when it come to food that we as a people are to complacent when it come to trying new things and the ingredients and spices we have give us the avenue to create and explore new things” Victor Okunowo

The name of the event (Ounje) translate literally to (Food) in the Yoruba dialect. You can look forward to an 8 course tasting meal, boasting the flavours and culture the motherland has to offer.
