@elegbede.m began his culinary career at Alliance Bakery in Chicago where he learnt the intricacies of baking and pastries. Understanding that education is the key to success, he moved out of Chicago and attended the Culinary Institute of America Greystone in California, where he attained a degree in Culinary arts, and consequently became a trained sommelier.
After graduating, he further refined his skills working at restaurants across the country, including the critically acclaimed Eleven Madison Park Restaurant in New York.
Coming back to where it all began, Elégbèdé is now on a mission to rediscover and share the story of Nigeria’s food culture with his own personal touch; focusing on the unique flavors, ingredients, and cooking traditions of Nigeria, thereby showing us that there is no love sincerer than the love of food.
