Come Home to Delicious Cakes and Bakes | Interview with the Founder of Hetika Bakery and Cafe

Meet Jenny from Sweden who runs a Cafe in Kohima with Her Naga Husband

  Today our R&L team member – Jungshi, takes us to a romantic little cafe in Kohima. It’s called Food – The Eat Well Place, which is run by a young couple – Lui and Jenny Tzudir. Jenny came all the way from Sweden as she was captivated by the Naga culture, and that’s when she found her Prince Charming in Lui, who is a Naga living in Kohima.

Jenny: Hi Jungshi, nice to see you and your friends again! So yes, we first opened our doors to customers over a year ago in March 2016. It’s been a dream for both of …
