Chef Selassie Atadika

Chef and Founder

Selassie Atadika’s culinary muses crisscross the globe—from her mom’s kitchens in Ghana and the U.S. to a decade in United Nations’ priority zones. Now back home in Ghana, she celebrates Africa’s culinary heritage through “New African Cuisine.” Atadika is a founding member of Trio Toque, the first nomadic restaurant in Dakar, Senegal. In 2014, she brought her innovative approach to Ghana through Midunu—a nomadic, pioneering dining enterprise. She studied at the Culinary Institute of America, holds a master’s degree in International Affairs from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and a bachelor’s degree in Geography modified with environmental studies from Dartmouth College.
