The amazing couple behind Norfolk Street’s popular Afro-Caribbean restaurant

Yemi and Grace Macauley have owned a grocers store on Norfolk Street, in Cambridge for twelve years.

This may not seem like news to many, but together they built a miniature dynasty of Afro-Caribbean food to feed Cambridge’s thriving Black community and every other hungry resident.

When they moved here from London in 2006, they found a ‘vacuum’ in this city where African food shops should have been.

Having travelled back up and down to London to get their produce for months, they decided to take matters into their own hands and set up their own shop, All Seasons Afro-Caribbean Store on Norfolk Street, Cambridgeshire.

Grace then started teaching Cambridge students how to cook after they couldn’t get enough of her Nigerian Jollof rice, and since 2015 they expanded by taking over the restaurant next door.

She does this all while working her full time job as a cancer specialist. Watch the video above to learn more about this joyous pair and how you can get your hands on their recipe for Jollof rice.
