Chef Tunde Wey Brings His Nigerian Food Salon to Austin and Boston

The Nigerian chef's food series exploring blackness in America comes to Austin, Saturday and Boston, Wednesday. Watch the video.

Okayafrica's favorite chef, Tunde Wey is bringing his food series to Austin, Texas this Saturday and Boston, Massachusetts on Wednesday. Get a seat at the table while you still can. If you still can.


As we've reported before, the New Orleans-based chef who specializes in Nigerian cuisine is currently on a nationwide tour intended to spark conversations about blackness in America.

As Wey told Okayafrica in February “If we are to have these conversations, and they are to be inclusive and sensitive then shouldn’t we sit about a table to eat, and raise our glasses in drink?”

In the video below Wey shares his his perspective on Nigerian food with the filmmaker Adesua Okosun. Take a look:
