Chi Chi Okwu: Everyone Belongs at the Table

Episode 001 Chi Chi Okwu EPISODE ART.jpg

“It doesn't have to be elaborate, but it does have to be intentional.”

“We not only need to eat for nourishment; we need to connect for nourishment.” 

In this first episode, Chi Chi Okwu joins the show to discuss how Nigerian culture and her childhood growing up in Alabama influenced her love of food and desire to intentionally gather people and feed them great meals. We talk about creating opportunities for people to know they belong, and starting with what you have—whether a couch, table, or kitchen island. Chi Chi reminds us that life is too short not to eat great food with great people.
