Akron women to cook up African Diaspora food at NoHi pop-up

Two Akron friends and business partners are once again cooking up authentic African Diaspora food as guest chefs this weekend at a pop-up restaurant in North Hill.

Jasmin Evans and Tameika Ginee are owners of the Hideaway Studio and Herbal Gift Shop off East Market Street in Akron and continue to dabble in food as they explore whether to venture into the restaurant business.

The pair are taking over the kitchen for one weekend at the NoHi Pop-Up in North Hill.

Evans grew up in Akron and eventually moved to Washington, where she learned to love Ethiopian and Trinidadian food by working catering jobs.

She has visited Trinidad three times and likes to sample local culinary scenes.

Ginee is from Warren originally but has called Akron home most of her life.
