Zoe's Ghana Kitchen

Starting with a makeshift stall selling peanut (aka groundnut) soup out of her studio flat at the Hackney Wicked Festival almost five years ago, Zoe Adjonyoh has unintentionally become one of the new voices of Ghanaian cuisine in London. A writer by trade, Adjonyoh insists she’s not a chef, choosing instead to focus on homemade favourites and traditional flavours, while adding her own contemporary flourish. Since its inception, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen has thrived at streetfood markets, pop-ups across London and Berlin, and is also an established event caterer. Born to a Ghanaian father and Irish mother, Adjonyoh deepened her understanding of West African cuisine after a trip to visit her extended family in Ghana, where she got time in her grandmother’s kitchen, explored the famous Kaneshi street market, and met with chefs who shared with her their own takes on tradition. For her most recent project, Adjonyoh has brought her Ghana Kitchen to shipping container comment project - Pop Brixton - a long term popup residency which gives the opportunity for Zoe to test her restaurant concept in a fixed space - ‘Chop Bar meets contemporary dining’. It’s the epitome of social, informal, and affordable dining – where guests gather to enjoy Ghanaian classics, notable for their heartiness and spice alongside Zoe’s contemporary inventions. Zoe's Ghana Kitchen is part of The Feast Collective at Camp Bestival. They will also be hosting amazing supper clubs over the weekend, more info here!  www.zoesghanakitchen.co.uk
