About Chef Opportune
Chef Opportune Akendeu, founder of Africa Chop food truck and catering, was born in Cameroon and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 14. Opportune is an intuitive chef who learned by watching and helping her parents prepare family diners and in no time she was able to cook elaborate dinners for private events.
What do we make?
With more than 10 years of experience, Opportune is the founder and Executive Chef for the first West African food truck to ever grace the streets of Los Angeles with delicious African gourmet cuisine. Opportune has an extensive resume detailing important clientele from brands like Yahoo, Red Bull, Oracle, HBO, Starz and was featured on Eater LA.
Opportune aspires to one day be an author of many well sorted recipe books and possibly directing and producing a film depicting her passion and love for food and her journey of becoming everything she ever dreamt of and more.
