I also got to catch up with the lovely Raquel of @pepperandstew on location @southbankcentre’s #AfricaUtopia with a stall of her produce. I taste tested her #shito and this is how good it was: mama has just landed from da mudderland of #Ghana with everything I need to make my #Christmas batch of shito… and I still couldn’t leave without purchasing a jar of Raquel’s… that’s how good it was. And this savvy business lady married up tradition with technology… I could pay by card right there and then. I just love me a #savvybusinesswoman. #afrofoodtalks #afrofusion #africanfood #afrofood #africancook #AfricanCuisineExpert #africancuisine #instafood #instayum #foodlove #LondonFoodMarkets

Spinach and smoked mackerel stew cooked in palm oil and tomato stew- kentumere (Ghana). Very tasty and comforting. I made this with plantain and cassava fufu. #fufu #kentumere #ghanafood #africanfood #westafricanfood #pepperandstew #pepperandstewkitchen #smokedmackerel #spinach #palmoil #tomatostew #ghana #instapic #instafood #instagood #instafoodie #instaafrica

African Cooking 101 - Yam

'Yam stood for manliness, and he who could feed his family on yams from one harvest to another was a great man indeed' ~ Chinua Achebe - Things fall apart

This root vegetable is excellent in soups, stews and tagines and can boiled, pounded or fried! How do you eat yours?

First attempt - hardo bread/ hard dough bread. I am in love ๐Ÿ˜. Can someone tell me if there is a difference between the Jamaican version and the Ghanaian version. Nigeria do you have this as well? Is it the same?#hardobread #harddoughbread #westafrican #jamaican #madebymyhands #bread #pepperandstew #pepperandstewkitchen #recipetesting #instabread #instapic #beauty #beautiful
