Olu’s Nigerian Community Kitchen

Nigerian Food + Olu + The Old Boat Community Kitchen

I first met Olu at the start of 2023 when she moved to the area with her husband and son. After explaining what we did and how our services worked she looked thoughtfully at me and asked if she could be a part of what we did. Olu explained that she was a skilled chef and her long term dream was to open her own nigerian restaurant in the heart of Brighton. So I asked her to start her story at the Old Boat. So  on the 4th August, with a very small budget and giving up her time for free Olu and two of her volunteer friends spent the day preparing the most amazing menu. Black pepper soup, Moimoi, Puffpuff, Fried Plantain for starters and then for main there was Jollof Rice, Sweet and sour chicken,  Poundo Yam and Mashed Beans with Agonyi sauce. The pictures speak for themselves and with over 45 people turning up and enjoying the food, music, drinks and the electric energy the evening was a success. Thank you Olu for starting what I know will be a hugely successful career here at the Old Boat.
