Dear Ghana Thinkers,
I'm part of a team that is in the process of setting up THE African Food Website with recipes, and reviews of restaurants, chopbars and joints which serve them. (Yup, we wanna check out Auntie Memuna's hausa kooko joint in your area). We would welcome your input in 2 areas.
1. We need a relevant name for the website. One name which has been suggested is "eduane", the twi (a Ghanaian language) name for food. We might use that name, but nyansa nni baako fo trimu nti (because no person is the sole repository of knowlege/ideas/wisdom thanks to Kweku ananse's failed attempt to collect all knowlege), we thought it wise to ask you to suggest a name.
2. We would like to know which foods you would like recipes for. This will inform choices of restaurants/joints to review. As an example, if you say you want the recipe for injera, bisap, waakye and pounded yam, we'll not only provide the recipes for these foods on the site, we'll also point you to all the joints in Africa which sell that food, plus reviews! so you can avoid the ones which consistently give running tummies or go to the places with the friendliest food sellers and get more value for your money!To add to our already growing list of african foods, we need you to fill a short form (just 3 questions, of which 2 are optional) by clicking on this tinyurl which points to the form: http://tinyurl.com/6qlpf2
Always in support of change we can create ourselves,
the african food website?
why, the others that are there don't do all of what you mentioned eh?
You are in the process of doing something, more grease to your elbows. Any more publicity for kelewele, hausa koko, waakye, koose, banku and akranteE is great in my book. Oh wait, it's African? that adds pap and stew, ugali, yassa, akyeke na paya, matooke, yum yum yum yum.
paa.kwesi is a great person for figuring out names, eduane is not bad either.
how about ndudu? the ewe name for food.
the destiny of a nation at any given time depends on the opinions and contributions of its young men and women.
so I see nududu won out in the end :-)
guys, check out nududu.com - nududu delights - they know all about African food.
Props to Woarabae for getting this started, the website is also looking good.
Africans do not have food sense and nor they know anything about Food Sensitivity. They just eat whatever they can.
The above is my contribution. I am certainly not a fan of fufu and that Kokonte stuff. Prefer to chew my food and i hate the way people put their hands in the stuff and turn it over with the water and how green that Kokonte jobby is. My parents thought i was a little stuck up snob when i completely refused to swallow those foods but they soon realised i wasn't for turning and left me well alone and i havent eaten those since i was five. But show me the way to any Banku or Kenkey outlet and Christ you've made my day. And if its anything to do with plantain whether roasted, fried or keleweled i am in. I even have the stuff with baked beans...odd i know but who has got the time for beans stew everyday huh?
THE CRINGE FACTOR! WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT GOD MADE THREE WORLDS AND THAT I COME FROM THE THIRD WORLD. THE ISSUE OF RACE IS GEOGRAPHICAL AND NOT A STATUS SYMBOL AND NEITHER IS MY SKIN BLACK NOR YOURS WHITE.
Hi Michael, don't you ever taste African foods? Don't speak like that. It's open forum. Watch your mouth dude. Hmm, I found great African culinary website to be add. It's a great site. It's on BETUMI.com.
