Irie Zulu is a seamless fusion of traditional African and Jamaican cuisines made in the beautiful Milwaukee, Wisconsin community using the best seasonal ingredients that we can possibly find.

Irie Zulu was dreamt up by owner and Maitresse de Cuisine Yollande Deacon, who also owns and operates Afro Fusion Cuisine brands. 15 years ago, when Yollande moved from her native village in West Africa to Milwaukee, she saw an opportunity to share with her new community an honest experience of her African culture. Yollande longed to tell the story of her ancestors and native African cookery in an authentic way. Once in Milwaukee, Yollande married into a Jamaican family deeply in touch with traditional Jamaican values which for the most part are rooted in Africa. The fusion of Irie ( Cool Jamaican culture) and Zulu ( Soulful and Vibrant African heritage) was born as a concept in 2006 and brought to life in October 2015.

Our Vision is simple: Be your reference and trusted resource for all things African and Jamaican foods.
