A West + Central African Cultural Dinner Experience by Kiki Louya of Folk and The Farmer's Hand
Inspired by their love for food, empowerment, community development and contributing to the greater good of humans, Kiki Louya + Rohani Foulkes have been busy focusing on local agriculture and food justice with the creation of their Corktown’s Folk and The Farmers Hand Kiki of Congolese descent, studied at Le Cordon Bleu and trained under chefs from the likes of Paul Kahan (Blackbird, Avec, Nico Osteria). Rohani – a native of Cairns, Australia, holds a Masters Degree in International Education, a trade apprenticeship in culinary arts and years as a chef on the East Coast of Australia. As a testament to their acclaim, these media darlings were just named one of the 19 Great Restaurants to Work For by Food & Wine Magazine, dedicated to treating their restaurant family, as professionals; setting high standards from the get-go. Add to this, their impeccable technique, coveted style and a whole load of imagination and we end up with an exploration of West & Central African Culture and a cherished dinner party honoring Kiki’s cultural hearth and cherished food traditions. How lucky are we! Friday can’t get here fast enough.
