Niyi grew up in Nigeria where spice and intense flavours were an intricate part of his childhood. After relocating to England, he found himself quite the novice in the kitchen, unable to match the level of flavour or spice his palate was used to. Years later, while travelling, Niyi worked with a chef who educated him on exploring unique new ways to fuse flavours from his multi-cultural upbringing together, thus the plan for Novice Kitchen was cooked up.
At Novice Kitchen, we deeply understand the source (and the sauce). The appreciation of an ingredient has the power to transform a dish into a rich story. Each ingredient used is personally sourced at a local market. With a key focus on sustainability, Novice Kitchen gives back, a small percentage of our sales go to an organisation focusing on developing sustainable, affordable and scalable methods of food production, to keep the stories going.
The brands unique blend of food, culture, simplicity and suave speak to a cohort of kitchen novices, giving them the ingredients to empower themselves in the kitchen and beyond.
