Lisa Bannerman has been making delicious made-from-scratch meals at Drelyse for over 10 years. She came to the US 20 years ago and missed her home food (from Ghana). She would cook often for friends here in Columbus, who all helped her realize that she had a special talent and that there was a need in Columbus for authentic Ghanaian (African) food. She has a Degree in Culinary Science which combined with her traditional Ghanaian recipes (passed to her over generations) leads to just the right combination of ingredients for maximum taste. She has taken what she learned from her mom and aunts and over the years has developed her own blend of secret spices and to make her meals come out just right.
She enjoys bringing that taste of home to Africans…but importantly, her greatest joy is to introduce people who have never tried African food to Drelyse meals and bring the culture of her land to the people of Columbus. At Drelyse, you feel you are hanging out in Lisa’s home, where any moment, you’ll see her pop her head out of the kitchen to say hello, share a sample of something she’s specially preparing etc. etc.
Her goal is to continue to present her delicious meals to diners of all races and backgrounds. She has taken on the challenge of adding new items to her menu regularly and adding a spin to some of her African meals so people from all backgrounds will enjoy it. Welcome to Drelyse.
