Format: Paperback
This book is absolutely FANTASTIC! The recipes, mostly from West Africa, range from very simple side dishes, that you could add to more familar fare, to complex fish, vegetable and meat dishes. All are clearly described and well illustrated (i'm no great chef but like to experiment in the kitchen and, having received this book just 2 weeks ago have already tried 6 or 7 of the recipes. All of them have turned out successfully - as far as I can judge - and all of them I will definately make again). There's also a nice section at the beginning explaining what some of the more unfamiliar basic ingredients you'll need to find are. BUT there is so, so much more to this book . . . you'll need to go out and visit those stalls in the local market that you were never brave enough to approach and find out how to judge the ripeness of a 'Plantain', choose your 'Yam' as well as find some extraordinary new ingredients like 'Egusi', 'Gari' and 'Palm Oil' that'll change your kitchen forever. . . and might just change your life.

Format: Paperback
Being of African heritage, I was asked to buy a suitable cookbook on African dishes from someone born and bred in England. In terms of value for money, this is far and away the best book I found. The dishes are mostly from the west of Africa, which is no bad thing, and it is simple, easy to follow and contains a detailed summary of the main ingredients used in the recipes. I could call it the Ronseal of African cookbooks but that wouldn't quite cover the author's acessible and galvanising enthusiasm for the subject or the inspiring photographs the book contains. I defy anyone interested in this genre of cooking not to try at least one recipe straight away after looking at the book. A valued purchase.

Format: Paperback
While many of the recipes make interesting use of traditional african cooking ingredients, it's completely misleading to suggest that any adequately represent actual african dishes. None of the west african named dishes come close to the originals.
