Born and raised in Cameroon, West Africa, and now living in Milwaukee Wisconsin for over 10 years, the founder of Afro Fusion restaurant, Yollande Tchouapi has experienced the growing void of West African culinary voice and point of view on local urban culinary fashion and entertaining trends and decided to act upon it.
Inspired by the passion to share with her community and the world the unknown beauties and treasures of her African culinary heritage, kitchen and home fashions, and driven by the unquenchable desire to empower local hardworking African farmers and craftsmen through Fair Trade NOT Aid, Afro Fusion Cuisine brands LLC was born in April 2012.
The concept is fresh, hip, urban but yet authentic. Afro Fusion brands are developed from Yollande’ childhood experiences in West Africa and enhanced by the contribution of family and friends in Milwaukee Wisconsin. It is comprised of:
1-Afro Fusion Spices and Sauces called Tastes & Treasures of Africa: Authentic Afro-ethnic culinary flavors, blends, and techniques. Each recipe has been carefully recreated and tested in order to deliver the most authentic flavor and taste possible.
2- AfroChic Kitchenware and AfroGlamc hostess line incorporates traditional authentic African inspired themes with a refined modern look. I have designed each item so that your kitchen reflects authentic African ideals, yet screams modern and chic.
3- On Demand African cooking Classes in our commercially accredited Kitchen overlooking Lake Michigan.
4- Easy, Simply and Tasteful African recipes by Afro Fusion Cuisine- African cookbooks and publications.
Afro Fusion is proud to render our product design and development to the highest degree of authenticity. In doing so, we also hope to encourage the African cultural practice of bringing families and friends together to share a relaxing and delicious meal. We strive to help you create memories and social time in the Kitchen, African style!
Afro Fusion Brands will create a lifestyle of new and exciting authentic experiences with every meal!
Afro Fusion’s Philosophy and Charity: Fair trade and social responsibility
Afro Fusion supports the local Wisconsin economy by choosing produce and products grown by local farmers.
Afro Fusion aims to improve educational opportunities for youth in Wisconsin and Africa. Without the gift of my education, Afro Fusion would not exist. In the spirit of returning a life altering gift, I have created the Afro Fusion Education Fund. A portion of the profit from every product we sell is placed in this fund to be awarded as scholarships to help these youth gain access to vital education.
