This awards nomination comes in the same year as Tokunbo’s Kitchen 2nd anniversary. Since the launch of her business, Tokunbo’s Kitchen, 2 years ago Tokunbo Koiki has fed over 5000 people having successfully operated at 6 street food festivals, hosted 9 pop-up and supper clubs events and completed 3 in-house chef residencies. In 2017 the business hosted an on-going residency at a Boutique hotel in North London with 80 – 100 covers per service, serving Nigerian Food to a demographic that had never tasted many of the dishes that were on the menu.

“Tokunbo’s Kitchen is a space and opportunity for people to experience and enjoy the type of delicious home cooked Nigerian food I grew up eating. I started Tokunbo’s Kitchen here in London as this is a city that has shaped me into the proud British-Nigerian woman I am.” Tokunbo Koiki, Founder of Tokunbo’s Kitchen.
Huge congrats to Tokunbo and wishing her the very best of luck.
