Chef Selassie Atadika

Our Chef

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 course work 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.
