I’ve started work on the latest extension, which I’m calling “My African Food Friends.” I had the absolute pleasure of filming Saqera and her friends brunching on black-eyed bean fritters on a bed of mashed yam, finished with an intense, other-worldly tomato-based sauce. Some pics under the “Pictures” section. Video soon!
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 month. 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.
Your comments on any uploads will always be welcome and I look forward to hearing from you!
Watch, share and follow the uploads on You Tube, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. If you like what you see, help keep this project going by clicking the SUPPORT button below.
