Meet Maggie Ogunbanwo in the first Graffeg Meet the Author Podcast. Discover more about her first recipe book - The Melting Pot - along with her latest venture into plant-based cooking in African Twist. Producer and interviewer Keiran Manetta-Jones joins Maggie discussing her business, her inspirations and her cooking.
Author Maggie Ogunbanwo runs Maggie’s African Twist, selling predominantly African sourced or themed food products both on and offline. Maggie is passionate about food and cooking as well as being committed to quality and the support of local providers.
Her influences flow from her Mam and Nain but are extended through contact with and work in environments with West Indian, Caribbean, Indian, Italian, Mediterranean and Latino foods. They continue to grow and meld with an additional Welsh touch added to the mix, widening Maggie’s international scope to tantalise a range of taste buds.
In 2021, with support from the Food and Drink Wales Industry Board, Graffeg published Maggie’s book, The Melting Pot, which showcased the diversity and variety of the Welsh BAME community’s culinary expertise. Her latest cookery book, African Twist, is publishing in February 2022.
