The Orishirishi Cookbook is inspired by her travel experiences and undying love for food. Before this, Orishirishi kitchen was launched to introduce a variety of Nigerian dishes to the Bogobiri menu. The core ethos of Orishirishi kitchen is to use locally-sourced produce which is carefully selected from farms and markets across Nigeria.
