Message from Kay:

“I grew up in the capital of Ghana called Accra with my Auntie who taught me how to cook. Life was difficult, but the cooking and food has always been important to me. In Ghanian food we always cook with pepper, onions, garlic, stock and lots of love. And this food reminds me of the people of Ghana who I miss dearly. I moved to the UK when I was 28, and now I am studying online at Bedford College ‘dignity and safeguard in adult social care’ and living with my little girl, Nana who loves to eat my food. I can’t wait to share it with all of you!”
