Zoe Adjonyoh is a chef, writer, entrepreneur, and founder of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen. Through her mission to bring the great flavors of West Africa to a wider audience, Zoe has been pioneering modern West African food in the forms of supper clubs (London, Berlin, New York, Accra, Wales, Russia), her own restaurant in Brixton, pop-ups, street food, and events since 2010.

In 2017 she released her debut cookbook Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, which was republished and released nationwide in the US in October 2021, earning a spot on The New York Times Best Cookbooks of 2021 List.

Based on Zoe’s work and impact, she was named one of “London’s hottest chefs” by Time Out and one of ‘The 44 Best Female Chefs’ by Hachette Cuisine France. She was honored at the James Beard Foundation In New York and given the Iconoclast Award in 2018. In February 2019, Zoe was invited to speak at TEDXOxford about Food: Its Importance to Cultural Stepping Stones of Understanding and Exchange.

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoe converted her entire catering operation into an online spice store selling house spice blends, salt mixes, and single origin ingredients from small, independent organic farms in West Africa; and a community kitchen to feed those most impacted by the pandemic (including the NHS staff) in her East London community of Hackney – serving 500 meals per week out of her home.

In April 2020, Zoe launched Black Book Global, a representation agency and platform for POC in the food industry and released her new podcast Cooking Up Consciousness.

Most recently, Zoe has joined the boards of The New American Table and Gods Love We Deliver, and serves as the Director of Women’s Programs at the James Beard Foundation in New York City.
