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!

Fresh Off the Press!

MAFM had a moment in the media when the Associated Press published this well-written ARTICLE about the project. It’s a great behind-the-scenes piece and is really a nice bit of motivation as I wade through the editing/post process.


My African Food Map: Senegal

- Posted December 2, 2018.

I returned from Senegal a couple of days ago, exhausted but happy! The ppl have spoken and the top dish was always THIEBOU DIEUNE. There’s a lot of work to be done before I get to posting videos, but stay up-to-date on the progress by following on Instagram, @myafricanfoodmap, if you aren’t already. As they say in Wollof, “Jai rruh jef” to all the wonderful people I met who contributed to my experience of Senegal!
