Zimbabwean chef discovers Africa’s vegan history

Zimbabwean chef discovers Africa’s vegan history

Nicola Kagoro is educating local Africans about the benefits of adapting a vegan diet. this Zimbabwe-based chef is not keeping up with the current times; rather, she is going back to the roots.

Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, Kagoro, aka known as Chef Cola spent most of her formative years in New York City.

But this Zimbabwe-based chef is not keeping up with the current times; rather, she is going back to the roots. When Nicola Kagoro told her friends that she wants to start a vegan movement in her community, they laughed at her. “Our ancestors were vegan," she said. "We have always been vegan, and that tradition and culture should not be forgotten." Kagoro was referring to the time before the West has colonised the African continent and overthrew the plant-based diet for a meat-based one, reported the Saveur.
