Chef Yohanis Hailermariam is bringing Ethiopian Food to a New Level

October 30, 2019

Chef Yohanis Hailemariam was raised in Ethiopia and later travelled to California, the USA, and Lyon, France to purchase a carrier on cooking.

Chef Yohanis was since his childhood fascinated with traditional ceremonies, especially the planning and preparation of the Ethiopian meals during the celebrations. Learning mainly from his mother, who was very fond of her cuisine, soon the young man departed on a promising culinary journey. At that time he had the chance to work at a high range in Paris and the US.

Several years later, after returning to his hometown Addis Ababa, he started different projects, including working as the head chef of local restaurant “Antica” and hosting a popular TV show on the EBS network.

Yohanis main passion is finding new ways to use traditional Ethiopian ingredients and he is changing the game. He genuinely believes that it is finally time for the health benefits of the local food to be made globally available in gastronomy.

While he is successfully promoting a healthy lifestyle brand, he even launched a line of spice products and has been featured on several international media, such as CNN and BBC World.
