Growing up in the bustling, Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, Eji Atlaw spent many afternoons in the kitchen with her mother and four sisters learning how to make homemade Ethiopian dishes.
Food has always been a passion for Eji, and one that stuck with her as she built a new life in the United States. Eji decided to pursue what she loves, and joined La Cocina to begin her own vegan Ethiopian business using her family’s recipes.
Eji's launched at last year's San Francisco Street Food Festival and was awarded the C.E.O Women 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the most promising business. Since then Eji has been working as a caterer and is currently developing a line of sauces that showcase Ethiopian flavors, spices and local ingredients.
