About Cookbuk

I love good food! Although I am not a “professional chef” I love trying new recipes and thinking of ways to modify existing ones (especially with Nigerian food) without losing the essence of the dish. I love the reaction people have to my food because why put something in your mouth if you don’t enjoy it right? I love cooking, I spend an unhealthy amount of time in my kitchen (and anybody else’s kitchen I go into), cooking relaxes me.

Cookbuk is a way to share my love for food, my successful and failed test recipes (trust me there have been a lot) and most of all it’s a way for me to get everyone excited to cook something for themselves.
