Gift Owonte

Chef Instructor


Gift R. H. Owonte has always been an avid foodie. Who once upon a time owned a food service business in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Somewhere along the line, she realized that to stay relevant in this fast growing industry, she needed to expand her knowledge and enhance her culinary skills. Her quest for these prompted her to enroll at the Culinary Academy in Lagos, Nigeria. Where she graduated as the Overall Best Culinary Student 2016/2018. 
And has continued to develop herself under the tutelage and mentorship of the quintessential Chef, Tiyan Alile. 

When Gift is not cooking, she is either teaching, designing, catching up with her reading or planning, organizing and collecting donations for the next shop-for-free in her Church.
