It was a cold, grey, blustery winters day when Noma (full of colour and light) walked into our lives! The BBC MasterChef Quarter Finalist won Theon over instantly; walking in wearing his colour and letting him wear her beads. Plus the girl can cook, what more could you want in a bestie? With a BSc Hons degree in Food & Nutrition and set to complete her Masters, the instinctive chef, inspirational speaker and a lifestyle coach loves nothing more than to talk food.
Noma’s Social Enterprise (Noma Creates) serves to empower people to develop healthy relationships with food. As an advocate of healthy eating (through her Master Classes) she is also a great role model. Especially when it comes to showing that humble beginnings need not mean sacrificing your dreams. Noma is a natural at empowering young people, by inspiring them to strive for excellence in everything they do. Much of what she teaches comes through leading by example and sharing her own food fables.
We sat for hours sharing recipes; comparing both African and Anglo-Hellenic cuisine. Whilst we chatted away what became very clear was that as individuals we are both equally passionate about two things: Food and Curbing the idea that ‘Good’ food is a privilege.
So, watch this space NomaCreates and Booberrit are currently in the HQ Kitchen cooking up a storm of treats for you in the up and coming months. From guest posts and health food tips to free Master Classes and talks on family friendly food.
Watch… This… Space…

A huge thank you to all the team at ARTOS, the Greek Patisserie in Camden. Who, kindly housed us, fed us and allowed Theon to run riot and rings around everyone in store!
