Why Relax, Chop, Enjoy?

Life is battle and we most times get so caught up in its chaos that we forget to hit pause, take a break and just Relax, Chop, Enjoy.

My name is DeeDee Asuamah, and I have spent most of my life avoiding the path I’m currently treading – pursuing my passion for culinary arts. This passion took root early; as a child, I’d rather spend time in the kitchen chopping onions or savoring sauces off the ladle.

Despite the kitchen horrors of overspilling pots, occasional burns, and knife scrapes, these challenges only fueled my passion. There’s something magical about the aroma of spices, the thrill of new recipes, and the satisfaction of delighting taste buds.

As I moved through secondary education, I had my sights set on being a professionally trained chef one day. That was until my parents and I had “The Conversation.” They saw cooking as a hobby and not a serious career.

I quickly understood the need to pivot in another direction, which led to my studying chemistry, pharmacy, and later business. For the past 15 years, I have worked at various drug manufacturers, from start-up biotechnology companies to big pharmaceutical companies.  

After years of professional experience and a deeper understanding of my unique talents and strengths, I asked myself, “If money were no object, what would I do?” The answer - be a teacher.

I am passionate about sharing information; I believe sharing knowledge elevates our collective consciousness. The key lies in ensuring everyone is carried along on the wind of self-development.

Relax, Chop, Enjoy aims to amplify these truths, providing a temporary respite for people to relax without the constraints of responsibilities. Thankfully, social media presents the perfect platform for this idea.

However, to fully embrace this channel, I had to overcome self-criticism, fear, and imposter syndrome, which has not been easy. While I’m still navigating my social media journey, I am committed fully to leveraging these tools to share Relax, Chop, Enjoy with the world.

Good food brings people together, breaking barriers and acting as therapy. Relax, Chop, Enjoy aims to harness this energy, creating a platform for conversations on various topics while navigating whatever is on the menu for the day. Join me at the kitchen counter as we share inspiring stories and empower each other. Why? Because you deserve to Relax, Chop, Enjoy!!!
