about

This inspiring memoir, now adapted for young adults, chronicles Top Chef star and Forbes and Zagat 30 Under 30 phenom Kwame Onwuachi''s incredible and odds-defying fame in the food world after a tough childhood in the Bronx and Nigeria.

Food was Kwame Onwuachi''s first great love. He connected to cooking via his mother, in the family''s modest Bronx apartment. From that spark, he launched his own catering company with twenty thousand dollars he made selling candy on the subway and trained in the kitchens of some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the country.

Born on Long Island and raised in New York City, Nigeria, and Louisiana, Kwame Onwuachi''s incredible story is one of survival and ingenuity in the face of adversity.
