I’m Ayobambo and this is my personal slice of the Internet where I share original, colourful, globally-inspired recipes using whole, natural ingredients. I am light on the heavy stuff and more about letting the food and recipes speak for themselves.

My ambition is not just to share recipes; it’s to teach and inspire, so you can grow as a cook, develop your repertoire, and eventually learn to cook without worries at all. I am not just passionate about food and cooking: I am also fascinated by the stories behind the food, and you’ll see my posts are full of those, too.

I really hope you enjoy your peruse through youcookandlive. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you!
