Ghanaiam-Food-1

Everything you need to know about Ghanaian food.

When we’re not trolling each other on Twitter about whose jollof rice is better, we’re teasing our Ghanaian neighbours about their insane love of (boiled) eggs and their interesting dishes.  Ghanaian food is just as interesting and colourful as the people of Ghana are. With main crops such as cassava, corn, rice, millet, plantains etc, most of their tribes make use of these staples and other ingredients to create their distinct meals. Their food etymology is actually quite similar to ours, with the main dishes often consist of starchy mains, accompanied with stews and sauces made with peppers, tomatoes and […]

Food Network Shows That We Love!

As a thorough foodie, one of my favourite things to watch – on the few times I do watch TV, is the Food Network. Apart from delicious recipes and fun-to-watch characters, some interesting shows portray the human spirit, as well as beautiful cooking. Here are some of my favourite shows native to the Food Network.   Chopped Chopped is a reality competition-based show where four chefs battle three times to get to the final round, where the winner takes home $10,000. There are mandatory mystery ingredients in baskets and each chef has to use these ingredients to create dishes for […]

A Short History Of Puff Pastry

Let’s start at the beginning: what is puff pastry? Puff pastry is a light, flaky crust or dough that is used a lot in baking. It entails layering dough with butter and then kneading over and over again, essentially forming layers of dough and butter – alternatives could be margarine or lard – which gives it its light texture. This layering, which causes the dough to rise in the oven, without yeast gives the delicacy its name.  Puff pastry is used in creating delicacies like croissants and tarts.  Like many concepts that have existed for centuries, the origin of puff […]

Lagos and the Myth of Seamless Food Delivery

Lagos Food Delivery Living in Lagos is not easy and neither is feeding in Lagos. If you’re like me who doesn’t like to cook, then you probably order takeout a lot. Thankfully, there are many services to fill that need but like many things in Lagos, it can be frustrating. We spoke to some Lagosians- vendors and customers alike- about the logistical and customer care nightmares that make them want to rip their hair out.  For Rotimi, (@chez_ro) a chef who cooks out of his kitchen, it took a while for him to hack the food delivery service in Lagos.   […]

Meal kits and recipe boxes in Lagos The impact of COVID-19 across many sectors of the economy has forced entrepreneurs to seek innovative approaches to reaching consumers.

Foodie in Lagos – We are Six Years Old Today – Blogversary

Hey! We are six (6) years old today (wow) – Sometimes I am still in awe because I am not sure how we are still here.

I initially was going to vlog about this but I did not prepare well so […]
