Culture through the lens of food


Jikoni (n.) kitchen

In Swahili, Jikoni means kitchen. At our core, that’s what we are; a space to learn about culture through the lens of food. 


What We Stand For 

Jikoni aims to highlight cuisines and culinary ideals that are under-represented in the culinary field, ultimately creating a community in which people can teach, learn, experiment and belong. Our focus is African culture and people, in as many spaces and contexts as we can reach.  

From editorial pieces on such subjects as recipes, travel experiences, and kitchen tricks, to video content of cooking shows and round table discussions, Jikoni will provide the tools for success and experiences meant to entertain and inspire.

This is a place that exists on contributions and interactions by the people, for the people. Our bottom line? All roads lead to Africa.
