About the Founder
Ever since I started blogging in 2008, I’ve been known by my internet moniker ‘Avartsy,’ but my real name is Yetunde.
This blog is a full time hobby/part time job (however you want to see it!) which gives me tremendous joy to work on. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with readers as much as possible and make it a point to respond to each and every comment I receive either on the blog, via email or social networks.
Some of my hobbies include, wait for it….cooking (yup, you guessed it!), clothing & makeup shopping, reading, writing and keeping up with the latest and greatest releases in technology. (If laughing could be considered a hobby, I’d add it, but alas it can’t, but I do love to laugh and enjoy a good joke).
Around the site you will see ‘About Us, Contact Us and Support Us,’ and while I remain the person who writes and edits the posts on the blog, I do receive an incredible amount of support from my family and friends. For instance, if I get a question about a recipe I’ve never tried/heard of before, I’ll ask my family and/or friends and take it from there, thus making it a concerted effort.
AvartsyCooking is owned and founded by Yetunde A., who is also the editor of AvartsyCooking.com. The blog began in December 2008 as a way to archive photos of Yetunde’s cooking. Yetunde was inspired to start the blog mainly because she noticed a dearth online for Nigerian food recipes and pictures. AvartsyCooking is known today for its detailed recipes and step-by-step guides.
