Summer season is a time of the year when fresh produce is in abundance, trust me there is a lot to eat during summer even though, the weather is usually hot but above all summer season is a pleasant time of the year.

In the culinary world, young

children are engaged in various things e.g “Summer Classes” whereby they are groomed by Master Chefs on how to Cook. Children also engage in other things apart from cooking. They basically, go for what they have keen interest in. During Summer families go on vacation to relax and dine with friends and well wisher’s. Trust me there is a lot to eat during summer.

Well, the summer season is an amazing time to get creative. People are always trying to put new dishes on their table or add some thing different to their menu during the summer.

It’s time for chefs to put new and delicious recipes out there add something different to their menu or just go out there try other people’s dishes and do some recreation. I see summer as a time for learning without pressure, funny how it’s sometimes the most busy period for us. Anyways, thats all i can say about the summer season. Thank you.”

“My Name is Grace Nwaokobia graduate of History n Inter relations. I started food blogging and Gracie’s kitchen in 2016. I am a certified “foodie”. I started at a very young age to help out in d kitchen even tho I would frown when I was asked to boil water, fry egg, cooking grew on me. It became a hobby. I would watch my mum and my very agile granny who still cooks very much in d kitchen.

The very first soup I learnt how to make from my mum and granny was afang soup and okra soup.I love trying out things, learning kitchen techniques, online classes, tutorials. At the moment, I am building my brand. Currently working on a menu/food packages for my clients on delivery and my future restaurant. I have incorporated both local and continental dishes in my menu and a separate menu for fitfam. Even though balancing work with cooking isn’t easy as anyone out there ll agree, your passion which is also at the top of the priority list, will always work and speak for itself.

My expectations for summer….hmm…it’s hard to call this season summer in Nigeria because one day it’s raining and the next, the weather is hot…so whenever I cook, I eat according to the weather😂 peppersoup, spicy dishes for a rainy day and when I go out to eat, smoothie, pizza and icecream, chicken and chips,basically meals with less spice… It’s been fun though especially days am less busy. and If am to describe Summer, its a time to “go places” and eat good food” and “make memories”.”
