My name is Shona, and I was born in Zambia on the continent of Africa. As a child my family moved to Durban, South Africa where I grew up, and went to University in Cape Town. After finishing my education I moved briefly to Brisbane, Australia and enjoyed the beauty of that country as well. I initially relocated to Denver, Colorado, and then moved to San Diego where I currently reside with my family. Whilst I love living in the States, a, I craved the delicious flavors of Africa, and missed the food of my youth that I remembered. I began the process of recreating my memories and perfecting my recipes, to bring back those African flavors. Cooking has always been a hobby of mine, and I am known as the ‘lady with the funny accent who is an excellent cook’. I’ve been encouraged by my family and friends to share those flavors with the rest of my adopted country. I hope you enjoy the flavors of my childhood.
