Ozoz Sokoh

Kitchen Butterfly
Ozoz Sokoh, an exploration geologist and food explorer is passionate about food – cooking, eating, dreaming, writing and photographing it, especially on her blog, Kitchen Butterfly. A ‘Traveller by plate’,she uses foodways – the social, cultural and economic practices relating to the production and consumption of food to explore the world and believes that ‘Food is more than eating’.

In 2013, she coined the phrase 'The New Nigerian Kitchen' - her philosophy and practice to celebrate and document Nigerian cuisine in its entirety from classic recipes to reinventing and representing Nigerian food, unearthing history, sharing techniques, using old ingredients in new ways, focusing on in-season produce, monitoring trends and more. She has created a number of novel documents like the first-ever seasonal produce for Nigeria and only one of a handful on the continent; a guide to Nigerian tastes and flavours; and more.

She believes that Nigerian food was, is and always will be worth celebrating. Viva la vida Naija food.
