NIGERIAN FUSION FOOD TOUR.
The first of it’s kind, the Nigerian Fusion Food Tour presented by Heels in the Kitchen was created with the aim of exporting Nigerian food to a larger crowd. By taking some of our everyday food elements and tweaking them, we hope to raise them to a fine dining standard that not only makes them easier for a non-Nigerian palate to understand but also shows the versatility of our Nigerian ingredients. Basically we are turning Nigerian food into Mede-Mede!
