I am Andrea Adjei - founder and the heart and soul of Comfort & Joy.
I am an artist with MA in printmaking from The Slade School of Fine Art and a formidable body of work in my portfolio. But long before I reached for the paintbrushes, I had already been introduced to pots and pans.
My roots are in Ghana and as I was growing up, my London home was always filled with exciting aromas of freshly prepared food. My mother, Comfort, was a chef and very early on she instilled in me the importance of fresh ingredients and home cooked meals.
Nourishing, comforting food inspired by mother Comfort has been at the heart of my cooking for over 10 years now.
I use my natural creativity to blend unexpected flavours and compose a dish as if I worked on a canvas. And most importantly I love doing it.
