By  |  4 Comments
Glaberima “when cooking is a tasteful poem” It is war A kitchen full of hungry guest An audience of folks ready for experience in the physical sense You sweat, bleed, love, and hate It is sharing In the most obvious state Of emotion garnished on the plate It is satisfaction Braxton Reid Glaberima the botanical name of our much acclaimed Ofada rice gives this weeks’ discovery uniqeness, this culinary artiste was forged in the fires of the not so glam backyards of the glamorous “Lagos Party Kitchen”, a humbling start up story, doing the dishes, slicing ingredients, serving the guest as a faceless and some worth nameless service mannequin. “King Glab” never felt less or deterred by the struggle during this formative undergraduate years at the “Prestigious” University of , where learning, swag, gadgets and celebrity level glitterati held sway. Funny how this would play out, but our is not a woman, but he’s definitely got panache, zest, guts of steel and lots of passion for the tasteful art of cooking. IMG-20170309-WA0004 In His words, “Never despise the days of humble beginnings says the speaker, but how can a 21st century youth who is full of life, vibrant and adventurous be humble in this world of craze, to be or not to be?” My interest in cooking is compared to none and like most success stories I started off with nothing to the extent that all the money I make during the weekends after serving and washing dishes at events I would still use to make food for anyone around in my hall of residence for free. Little did I know I was planting a seed for my tree of passion. In my third year, I won the first position prize in the maiden edition of University of Lagos business plan competition sponsored by Stanbic Bank and ever since then “King Glab” my pet name has been on repeat on everyone's lips.
