My African Food Map is an ongoing series committed to introducing and making popular cuisine from Africa accessible to you.
Focusing on one country at a time, I will dedicate at least a month to showcasing four popular dishes by uploading one, ±4-minute film for the duration of that time. Each dish will be introduced through local food enthusiasts, so we know that we will be getting a very special perspective on the way it is prepared and how it is best enjoyed.
Alongside the recipe feature, I may also upload a “my VOICE” featurette, which will accent the main dish by, for example, pointing to any alternative information about its origins, or alternate preparatory methods – or basically any train of thought that the featured recipe or country stimulates.
Watch, share and follow the uploads on You Tube, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Your comments on any uploads will always be welcome and I look forward to hearing from you!

Everything about being in Ethiopia was inspiring and thought-provoking. I think the most fitting way to mark the final video upload of this featured country, is a glimpse at the famous, “Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony,” which is by far and away the best way to drink coffee
While I was in Addis filming the 4 most popular dishes (see here), I was interviewed by DR K, the national Danish broadcaster, about Chef Yohanis for their series on “Africa’s new gourmet chefs.” I make a brief appearance in the part about teff.
An authentic collection of the most popular recipes from around the African continent. It is the start of a growing record of African recipes just as they are made, by people who love to eat them, and who prepare them every day.
The Gemüse Project
The Gemüse Project Ltd is a small, Berlin-based production company, which was founded in 2007. Headed by Tuleka Prah, the company currently employs freelancers for various tasks, depending on the job requirements. We are everything about editing and filming: hatching an idea, formulating a plan (of action, of course) and then making it happen. Always. So if that’s what you want, please feel free to contact us.
I’m a filmmaker and PhD graduate living and working in Berlin. I’ve been in Berlin for a little over 10 years now and am generally happy with my decision to move here. I’m the middle child of three, so, I am an older and younger sister. I love to read – I’m in constant need of a new book – and I love making films.
I also have an addiction to cherry tomatoes and honey pomelos. I could eat these all day. I always have ideas and am lucky to get a chance at seeing some through from time to time. One of these ideas was the Food Map.
My African Food Map is literally a combination of the things I love because it includes, food, travel and making films!
