Hi…… I am Chef Oreva Ewhoforama, the owner and manager of Raev’s kitchen. I was born and raised in the western part of Africa from Delta State, Nigeria. Oreva is 28 years old born January 23rd 1994, I later relocated to Toronto Canada at the age of 20. When I discovered my love and passion for food and cooking, I decided to start my own cooking business.
Raev’s Kitchen was found in the year 2020, now that was a memorable year for everyone due to COVID19. Covid had a major effect on everybody’s lives worldwide especially for someone like myself who’s a single mom with no job and other major life challenges like depression and so on.
Cooking became therapeutic and a means of survival wanting to provide and make enough income for myself and kid. I’ve always loved and had passion for food and cooking that’s why I decided to make it a profession. To gain more experience and sharpen my skills I enrolled in the CEE Kitchen Master’s program Toronto.
I love catering and did get a lot of work experience where I was able to learn how to work collaboratively with others in a fast-paced environment. My goal is to own a restaurant and possibly a franchise where everyone can come together to experience the wonderful tastes and flavours of different African-Canadian cuisine. Outside from being a chef, I love to sing and am a musician.
