I grew up in Kenya where farm fresh food was a way of life. During my childhood, my siblings and I helped my mother tend the land and grow the season’s bounty. We would harvest corn, lentils, spinach, squash, mangoes, and more.
Utilizing nutrient dense and vitamin rich local ingredients, herbs and healing spices, we would make dishes like Sukuma Wiki, a sauteed kale dish, and Ndengu, a hearty mung bean stew. Often, dessert and snacks were the fresh fruit in season.
Food connects us and strengthens our bonds. I am grateful to my mother, grandmother, and extended aunts for the fond memories, laughter, and nutritional wisdom gained around the open fire, as the pot slowly simmered.
This inspired my journey to create Global Village Cuisine. I wanted to create nutritious & flavorful meals for my children. When blessed with a child born with severe food allergies, I realized I could slightly adjust traditional recipes and make delicious African cuisines free of most major allergens. Now, our line of African meals is found in Whole Foods across New England.
We've also recently introduced a meal delivery service that's shipping across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic (with Nationwide Shipping coming back soon). Our online meal delivery service gives you items you can't find in stores, like samosas, gluten-free falafel, and vegan black bean kofta. We also bring you our special menu items, like sauces and vegetable side dishes.
We honor the essence of African hospitality and invite you to taste the warmth, generosity, and commitment to simply good food. This is how we celebrate life. Grab your plate, take a taste, and join our Global Village.
