Yoruba Cooking & Food Preparation Words

curiousfindingsJune 19, 2020

What can I find on this site?

My tastes are varied and food has taken me to different countries in search of what other cultures consider good food.

There are some techniques, explorations, reflections and observations from travel.

Art

Since I was young, I have always created art in one form or another. In recent times I have been exploring many forms of making to find what I enjoy.

The creative process has been a refuge for me in times of pain. No matter what I am going through I know for certain that if I am able to create anything no matter how small I will not only feel better but have courage to take on the world.

Here are a few of those things that have kept me here on the hard days.
