Our Story

We Take You On An Exciting Journey To Africa Through Cooking Experiences Paired with Live Music and Storytelling By Africans.

 Motherland Cooking Xperience was founded with the aim of providing a platform for immigrants with ties to Africa to showcase their talent, through food, music, art, and storytelling in an effort to bridge the cultural gap between African immigrants, their families and their communities of residence.


We also want to empower our cooks and creatives financially and foster faster participation in their communities of residence.

At Motherland Cooking Xperience, we are passionate about showcasing the diverse authentic and exciting cultures of Africa through delicious food, cooking demos, beverages, and music from Africa hosted by Africans.
