I was recently invited to participate on a panel in the UNESCO World Forum, which took place in Parma in mid-September. It was an intense and interesting couple of days, which gave each participant a glimpse into the various paths food had taken us, through the lenses of culture, education, and sustainability. The part where I introduce myself and the Food Map starts at 3:34:41 mins:
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!
