Hello guys, gosh I haven’t done this in a month now. Last post was Aug 20th, yikes. I really should have kept you all updated but I was gunning for the surprise factor. Things didn’t go according to plan and something that should have been done and dusted, I am on the 3rd iteration. Frustrating I tell you, but I can now see light at the end of the tunnel.
What is this iteration you say. Okay, okay, I confess, the site is under re-design. It has taken more work than I ever thought possible and I would like you guys to please bear with me while we put up the finishing touches to what will definitely be pleasantly surprising. You know I did hint that something was coming in September, well September will gracefully draw to a close and you will see the new and improved Dooney’s Kitchen. I wish I could give you a sneak peek, but I have been advised against it. Dooney’s Kitchen is setting the trend again, and best to do the grand reveal when it is all done.
So, what else has been happening, well I got to meet the talented Banke Meshida Lawal. We chatted on Instagram, she told me she would be in London with her family and she needed food. My very first VIP Client. The pressure was on, but I delivered. Banke is such a sweetheart. The amazing feedback she gave on her Instagram page, and I mean in Nigerian colloquial terms #feedbackoflife has opened so many doors for me for my meal drop off service, my phone hasn’t stopped ringing. The people I have come to meet and cook for, people ordinarily I wouldn’t have had access to, all thanks to Banke. The ministry is moving and I am now more confident with long-term plans for the future.
Oooooh, something also amazing happened, well it was kept under wraps too for the grand reveal. I was commissioned to provide pictures and recipes for the first ever Knorr Nigeria site. This was a project I worked on months ago and was waiting patiently to see the site. Very proud moment I tell you. To see my work associated with a brand like Knorr. People, Dodorishi is now legit. Knorr Nigeria accepted the signature Dooney’s Kitchen dish. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be accepted to be honest. I googled dodorishi to pass the recipe on to a reader and saw the Knorr ng site link. I screamed so loudly that evening, I must have scared my neighbours terribly. A day to be remembered, surely. Link to Dodorishi on Knorr Ng right here: http://www.knorr.ng/recipes/detail/14232/1/dodorishi
Here are a few pictures from the Knorr Ng site:
Here is a link to the site: http://www.knorr.ng/recipes. You will find old Dooney’s Kitchen favourites and some new never been seen before pictures and recipes. All 50+ of them.
So, that is what I have been up to this past month. For all of you who left comments asking about my absence, facebook messages, emails, tweets and instagram comments, I would like to say thank you very much for the love and concern, I truly appreciated that you noticed my absence. It really meant a lot. The countdown has started to the grand reveal. Count with me and wish me luck. I am coming back bigger and better. The best you have ever seen yet. Have a lovely weekend folks and y’all in Lagos, get ready!!!!!!!!!!
