Hi everyone. I moved to Nigeria earlier this year and have learned a thing or two about Nigerian food. It is so diverse and exciting. But true to my nature; I weave through it, interpret it and simplify it enough for new beginners. Enjoy one of my most favourite Nigerian recipes. http://www.myburntorange.com/edikaikong-recipe/

Hello members. I wish you all the warmest greetings. I have done a major cleanup of posts in this group and have updated the group info for the benefit of ensuring future posts are both informative and fit the description of this forum well. Please read. Best. Freda


African cuisine is fast becoming the food of choice for anyone looking to try something new. And that is all you need to do, try. Share your African food stories and recipes here.

House Rules:

This forum is strictly for African cuisine at this point in time. Whilst we have many other similar cuisines from the diaspora such as that from the Caribbean and South America, we want to shed light on food particularly from Sub Saharan Africa. North African food, whilst is African, we recognise as mostly Middle Eastern and is already well known, therefore we will not be focusing on accepting posts from those regions at this point in time. (There are so many other popular forums for those too).

Please ensure your posts are both informative and that you have the right to post that content.

Please do not post photos which do not belong to you and please provide informative descriptions of the food you are posting. We are here to learn.

Please refrain from posting about non African cuisine related topics as these posts will be removed immediately.

We do not accept posts promoting sales of products at this point in time.

Remember that we wish to shed light, uplift and educate about food which has neither been celebrated and still remains unknown to most of society.

We appreciate your cooperation.

This is a soup I bought at Sainsburys. Who would have thought it could look this good in a bowl?

This is the food of childhood nostalgia people. Amagwinya or #magwinya bring the fondest memories to many people in Botswana and South Africa.

No. My sister is not cooking, although I seriously wish she was. Koeksisters are an absolutely sinfully delicious treat for all that syrupy glistening shine absorbed by these cute braided donuts. So cook sister, cook!

And now after what seems to be an eternity is a fab post on my personal blog. What would you make of this aubergine dip? Baba ghanoush, moutabbal or something else?
