      Jocelyn Salala

      Tanzanian-American Chef

      Jocelyn describes her culinary style as Modern Home Cooking. As a Tanzanian-American, her food provides a balance of local swahili spices with an American farm-to-table technique. Her passion for cooking stems from growing up in a household where her parents always hosted family and friends over home cooked meals. Over the years, her love for cooking has become more than a selfish, pleasurable hobby and has transformed into a style of quick, easy recipes and tricks she wants to share with the world. I am currently located in Los Angeles, CA.
