About Anna Makanju

Anya was born in the former Soviet Union to a Ukrainian mom and a Nigerian dad and raised by her Jewish grandparents. She has since lived, studied, worked and eaten all over the world. She first fell in love with food while studying in France and working in a tiny bistro. Anya went on to spend many years in the business. Although her life took a tragic turn many years ago when she accidentally went to law school, she has never forgotten her true love and is excited to share it with you.
