Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen set to open in London Fields
Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen is set to open in London Fields next month, with a brand new residency at the cinema and event space The Institute of Light.
Zoe Adjonyoh, founder of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, has been championing West African food and culture since 2010, with a string off sell-out supper clubs, a tenure at Pop Brixton and a cookbook.
The London Fields site will feature a new menu, which will include small plates designed to eat with your hands, of Oto cakes with soft boiled egg, Cassava crisps with scotch bonnet salsa, Kenkey and Sardines and Zoe’s signature Ghanaian Red Red Bean Stew.
Larger dishes of Jollof Chicken with lettuce wraps, Goat Shocko and Plaintain pork belly will sit alongside a menu of specially created cinema snacks with Akara fritters, Okra and Kelewele.
Zoe commented: “Being back in East London feels like a true homecoming for us It’s where Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen began, at the Hackney Wicked arts festival, and to think how much we’ve grown since a home-made sign saying ‘Zoe’s peanut butter stew’ is mind-blowing.
“I’m a huge admirer, and long-time patron, of the IOL, and to be laying down roots in such a wonderful space is a real honour. We’ve been working at creating loads of new and exciting dishes, but getting people familiar with African flavours is still what we’re all about. It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I can’t wait to get started on the next adventure.”
The residency will also see Zoe host regular events, one off dinners and collaborations with other London’s chefs.
Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen will open on March 7th at The Institute of Light.
