In 2014 Kente Kitchen was born bringing West African flavors to Asheville North Carolinas' Goombay Festival. Ramona Young has a passion for the food that was taught to her by her late fiancés' Mother, sisters, aunties and his Liberian community.
Chef Ramona wanted to continue this love affair and passion for West African food and his memory by expanding her business to also include catering, community efforts to teach and feed kids healthy meals and now in 2022 Kente Kitchen has transformed into Kente Kitchen Market an E-Commerce grocery store of West African food products for you to recreate and create West African culinary master pieces at home and its previous services.
WE WOULD LOVE TO FEED YOU My recipes are prepared from the heart with fresh locally sourced ingredients and West African spices, seasonings, and sauces. They can be prepared to accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, flexitarian, and pescatarian diets. If you have traveled to Africa or never have traveled to Africa, the Kente Kitchen Market is an opportunity for you to experience or remember all the flavors. Something that you will find nowhere around town. So, let Kente Kitchen Markets’ drum circle of flavors dance your tongue to the beat of the Motherland!
Are you looking to try something new at your next event? Or would you like to continue with the more “traditional” foods that you are accustomed to? How about “a little bit of this and a little bit of that”? We do not mind preparing for you what you want.
The dishes are served as a feast where you can enjoy the food while engaging in conversations and laughter with your friends, family, or guests around the dining room table.
Pre-order from a weekly menu sent out every Monday for a wonderful West African Wednesday lunch experience. West African Wednesday is the opportunity to try out different dishes from our menu.
