Award-winning Ethiopian restaurateur Tutu Melaku could add to her ever-growing trophy cabinet after being nominated for a Pride of Reading Award.
Ms Melaku, who has run Tutu’s Ethiopian Table for ten years, could serve up the Small Business in Action Award after being nominated by foodie fan Greg Dopson.
Mr Dopson, from Tilehurst, who has been a customer at the Global Cafe at Reading International Solidarity Center (RISC) eatery in London Street for eight years.
He said: “Tutu is amazing. She sends money to Ethiopia to build schools. Her food is amazing. She is creating a new business around her sauces.”
And building on her menu of success, she launched her own brand of Tutu’s Table Sauces in October 2015, which represent a sample of the type of food served at the Global Cafe.
“I would love to hear from people if they would like to see some more,” said Ms Melaku.
