Why Us

There is nothing more important than food. That’s how we truly feel at yummy maker. I grew up on the islands of Cape Verde where eating revolved around family, tradition, and love. My childhood consisted of learning to make the best with what I had, and I was always on the lookout for different ways to make classic dishes. That passion has followed me here, to New York City, where I’ve learned so much about what it means to be a foodie in an urban environment.

I’ve seen and met so many great cooks in my time here. The most important untapped food resource in New York is its citizens. So many talented individuals with wonderful ideas for good and tasty food can be seen at any time of day or night, at supermarkets and shopping centers. Many of them parents, and inheritors of all sorts of culinary traditions. People from Asia, South America, Europe, Africa, and so on.
