I have worked as a chef for over 25 years. I studied a Diploma in Hotel and catering management and NVQ 3 at North Down and Ards institute. My first job in the industry was in RNIYC club at Cultra, Holywood. I progressed to Head Chef of Bewley's cafe, at age 21, at Bloomfields Bangor. I developed my bread and baking skills as Head Chef at private Nursing home in Ballyholme. I went on to work for Wagamama as boh manager at Amsterdam, Antwerpen, and helped with the opening and training of staff at the opening of Belfast, Wagamama. We love Africa and I went with my family to Ghana for 2 years. We opened a jungle style BnB for travellers, at Kakum rainforest. We lived off grid, working with nature. I have a passion for positive living, African food, music, natural arts & crafts. I am friendly, I want you to feel at home and relaxed at Kakum.

Suzanne is a really lovely and friendly host! We totally enjoyed our time with her! The food was INCREDIBLE, still thinking of the okra soup🤤 I booked this as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it and couldn’t stop talking about it😆 She shared a lot of her experience with us and we learned a lot of interesting things from her. We can feel her passion for African food and culture, and really appreciate that we could immerse ourselves in it through Suzanne and her food! We strongly recommend this experience to everyone, both visitors to NI as well as locals to support this wee gem!🥰
