Whoever Knew Yetunde Kuti Was A Damn Good Chef? Meet Chef Yeide Who Wow’ed Us! 

November 19, 2019

We got an expert mixologist to help us bring one of our sponsored VRSUS videos to life by mixing varieties of chapman. Little did we know she was also a chef until we got in a conversation with her, while sipping our sublime drinks; no they were not spiked.

Apparently, Yetunde Anikulapo Kuti, professionally known as Chef Yeide, is not just a mixologist, she is also a chef and what we would call a versatile creative; how else can we describe the fact that she can sing, dance, mix great drinks and cook mouth-watering dishes?

What began as a passion for cooking creative and tasty dishes at age 12, under the guidance of her late grandmother led her to open her new restaurant-Kuti’s Bistro- which caters Intercontinental and West African cuisines in a contemporary and fine dining atmosphere

Chef Yeide studied Music at MUSON Center, Lagos in 2009, becoming a backup singer and dancer with Seun Kuti and Eypt 80 before she thought to pursue a culinary career, going back to her first love for cooking. This was why she went on to learn cake making and cookery at Yetkem Institute of Catering and Hotel Management in 2010. Her zest for more culinary knowledge had her making French and Senegal cuisines in a French restaurant when she moved to Paris in 2013. 

Being widely traveled and bagging a  degree in Culinary Arts, an Advanced  Diploma in Food Preparation and Cookery,  and a Higher International Diploma from Westminster  Kingsway College Centre, England, United Kingdom prepared her for the role of an Executive Chef at Barrel Lounge and Restaurant, Ikeja, Lagos in 2018, where she worked for more than a year before establishing Kuti’s Bistro.

Our advice? You should try the chef’s special when you go to Kuti’s Bistro; signature dishes like the Seafood Ofada, the SK (a fish special), the multi-coloured sauce special, they taste superb. Kuti’s Bistro is at located at 9, Ogundana Street, Ikeja, Lagos.
