Singer-songwriter Yemi Alade showed us around her vacation home’s kitchen, and besides it being absolutely stunning, she talked about what makes it more unique than most other kitchens.
When it comes to her kitchen staples, fresh fruits and vegetables are an absolute must. On her countertop, she had a platter of grapes, apples, pineapple, and some watermelon already chopped up and ready to be eaten. In her fridge she also had some drinks and leftovers, including a whole roasted fish that she kept in there to finish for lunch.
Since this is Yemi’s vacation home, her cabinets and pantry are practically empty as she doesn’t need ingredients and has admittedly never cooked in this kitchen: “In this particular pantry—my second home away from home—we find nothing in my pantry because I never cook. I never need to cook, and that is the fun part about this kitchen. You just get into this kitchen and get fed,” she said. One of her favorite foods to eat is bolognese.
The only thing she keeps in the cabinets are…plates. Seriously! There are not even pots and pans. Some things you’ll never find in her kitchen (besides basic ingredients!)? Firstly, zucchini is a no-go because she finds the vegetable “very weird.” She’ll also never have catfish around because she can’t eat it. You’ll also never ever find frog’s feet in her kitchen because although it’s a delicacy in her area, she just doesn’t like it.
“I think my kitchen is the coolest kitchen ever because ask any person out there and the coolest kitchen is the kitchen where you don’t have to cook because food is always available and it’s tasty,” Yemi said. “I should call my kitchen magic kitchen or something.”
