Meet the Ghanaian chef ditching restaurants and moving meals outside


(CNN)Selassie Atadika wants to change the way you eat.

The UN worker-turned-chef is on course to revolutionize African cuisine through her new movement: the nomadic dining experience, where she encourages diners to ditch restaurants and move meals outside.
    “It’s about creating experiences in different locations in a way similar to my lifestyle working with the UN, but also in the context of Africa … the Nomadic people,” Atadika told CNN.
    “It’s I guess similar to a pop up restaurant but rather than having one fixed location, we move around and we change our menu.”

    New African cuisine

    Midunu (‘Come Let’s Eat’), Atadika’s company, hosts Nomadic dinners every other month where diners can enjoy a four course meal in various locations across Accra.
    The menu is made up of what Atadika describes as ‘New African cuisine,’ which celebrates Africa’s culinary heritage by putting a modern spin on traditional foods from across the continent.
    “I love re-introducing people to food that they know but in a new way,” Atadika explains. “I’ve had clients who are not familiar with Ghanaian food or who have heard of certain parts or certain types of dishes and have never tried it, have never been willing to try it until they tried it with me so it’s actually just kind of opening people’s eyes to something.”

    Slowing down modern life

    Atadika hopes that through nomadic dining she will encourage people to preserve the bond of coming together to eat.
    “We have these nomadic dinners where people who don’t know each other sit together, talk and usually by the end of the night are exchanging business cards or phone numbers,” she said.
    “Everything has become so electronic and it’s really… how do we just slow down a little bit and enjoy where we are?”
