Mikoulé! My name is Adé and I am a chef and storyteller who specializes in Neo-West African cuisine. I was born in Porto-Novo, Benin but was raised in a Puerto Rican home after being adopted at 10. My mission is to bridge cultural gaps, reimagine West African food, highlight Black foodways, and create safe spaces for important conversations to spark healing across the diaspora. I'm so excited to go on this journey with you of experiencing Beninese food and culture! Wa mi Dounou!
