Iré Hassan-Okudale is the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Ikoyi, a micro-seasonal fine dining restaurant which serves global interpretations of West African cuisine in the centre of London.

Ikoyi builds its own spice-based cuisine around British micro-seasonality: vegetables slowly grown for flavour, sustainable line-caught fish, and aged native beef. Iré’s kitchen serves guestsan interpretation of produce in its optimal state, harnessing as much flavour as possible, while respecting the true nature of the ingredient.

 The foundation for his restaurant’s menu is a vast collection of spices with a focus on sub-Saharan West Africa, which it has sourced with utmost care since opening.
