About the Book

The greatest lessons that Olu Laoye learned in life have come from her kitchen. Much of that time was spent alone, where she meditated on life lessons and even random thoughts on different philosophies. She shares lessons such as: • Ignore the negative things that others say about you, so you can go higher. • Never accept that someone has the right to view themselves as better than you. • Make valuable and seasoned friends after you come out of the fire. • Look for a mentor that will train you to be a mentor to others. The author also highlights the importance of identifying the bakers and butlers of your life—the ones who put the ingredients of your life together and open doors that lead to your destiny. She also looks back on betrayal, escaping a near-death food poisoning experience, astonishing surprises at the edge of disappointments, and following her dreams after a spiritual awakening. If you’re looking for a cookbook, you will indeed find insights on cooking certain dishes, but you won’t find recipes. Nevertheless, get ready to learn many lessons from the kitchen.
