The creative force behind Midunu is Chef Selassie Atadika who from a young age, could be found in the kitchen, grinding ‘pepe’, not too far from her mother’s apron strings.  This culinary interest, from her Ghanaian roots, has evolved through time spent and meals sampled in the US, Europe, and countless countries in all the corners of Africa.  After years of self-teaching in the culinary arts, she completed coursework at the Culinary Institute of America.  A founding member of Trio Toque, the first nomadic restaurant in Dakar, Senegal, she has brought her innovative approach to African cuisine back home to Ghana to introduce them through Midunu, a nomadic dining concept featuring what she calls New African Cuisine.

Midunu is a lifestyle company with an eye towards celebrating Africa’s cultural and culinary heritage.  Before starting to eat a meal, Ewe people say, ‘Midunu’, which means ‘Let us eat’, inviting all those present to partake in the food which we are blessed to have.  The company’s goal is to create experiences where culture, community and cuisine intersect, reminiscent of earlier times while creating new memories. The business achieves this goal through a bespoke event space: Midunu House, off and on-site private dining, nomadic dining, and artisanal chocolates.
