Welcome to the seventh segment of Foodie Fridays. This is a series whereby individuals who love to eat, cook, bake, grocery shop, think up new food recipes, tryout different cuisines, test out new restaurants, watch food network, read food magazines, etc answer some questions.
Seventh guest – Motun A.
Prior to asking Motun to guest star, I wasn’t sure how much of a foodie she was. My doubts dissipated when I read her responses. I mean, an omorogun (turning/pounding stick) as a priced kitchen gadget 😄. Definitely a Nigerian and a foodie in my book.
