The Ghana Cookbook
Gourmand Cookbook Award Winner -
Best African Cuisine Book 2016!
The Akan proverb “The good soup comes from the good earth” elegantly sums up Ghana's tradition of cooking with seasonal, local ingredients. With an emphasis on locally caught fish and seafood, vegetables, fruits, and legumes, Ghana’s cuisine is vibrant, healthful, and eminently appealing. Limited access to wheat and dairy allows for a variety of gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan options using starches such as plantains, cassava, taro, sweet potatoes and millet, and creamy nut-based soups and sauces.
In over 140 recipes, the authors highlight the flavor principles, seasoning techniques, and basic stocks, with later chapters dedicated to snacks, soups and stews, protein entrees, beverages, baked goods, and much more.
