Product description

Book Description

Traditional Ghanian recipes re-mixed for the modern kitchen.

About the Author

Zoe Adjonyoh is a writer and cook from South-East London. Her pop-up restaurant and supper club has been making waves in the foodie scene - both in London and Berlin - bringing traditional and contemporary Ghanaian food to an audience outside of the Ghanaian community. Zoe appears at streetfood markets, pop-ups and festivals across Europe, as well as providing cookery classes and being an established event caterer.

A writer by trade, Adjonyoh insists she's not a chef, and chooses to focus on homemade favourites and traditional flavours. Born to a Ghanaian father and Irish mother, Adjonyoh deepened her understanding of West African cuisine after a trip to visit her extended family in Ghana, where she spent time in her grandmother's kitchen, explored the famous Kaneshi street market, and met with cooks who shared with her their own takes on tradition. Zoe completed her MA in Creative & Life Writing at Goldsmith's University.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love cooking and I am always keen to try new recipes, and different cuisines, so I was delighted to try this book of ‘traditional Ghanaian recipes remixed for the modern kitchen.’ As with many cookbooks that aim to introduce you to a new style of cooking, there is an introductory guide to ingredients – including spices and herbs, pulses, grains and legumes, staple ingredients and flavourings, fruits, vegetables, yams and plantains.

Recipes are split into: Salads, Fish & Seafood, Veggie Dishes, Meat, Sides, Desserts, Drinks & Snacks, Dips, Sauces and Salsas. If, like me, you enjoy reading cookbooks, this also has a lot to offer – including the authors ‘Ghana story,’ a list of music to cook to and even the intriguing, ‘Ghana get Irish,’ With some beautiful photographs, interesting recipes, and armed with lots of supplies than a Ghanaian friend of mine happily introduced me to, I was ready to begin.

There are some surprisingly easy, and very tasty, recipes in this book. Favourites so far are Smoked Fish Stew, Roasted and Stuffed Spiced Sweet Potato and the absolutely delicious Avocado and Divine Chocolate Mousse. I did tweak some recipes, I will admit – being not a great fan of nuts or strong chillies, which both feature highly in many recipes – but this does offer some unusual suggestions and recipes and it is also fun to try out something new.

Zoe's Ghana Kitchen

For many years, I've lived near to Ridley Road market in London where author Zoe Adjonyoh buys many of the ingredients she uses in her food business. I have always wondered about how to cook the mysterious-looking fruit and vegetables sold there. Adjonyoh was born of an Irish mother and Ghanaian father, grew up in the UK, is a self-taught cook and is on a mission to bring African cuisine the mainstream UK market. This book is my window into Ghanaian flavour profiles and cooking methods. It isn't a homage to Ghanaian cookery but instead adapts recipes for the Western palate. I cannot tell you how much of a delight it is to cook from this book - and to eat the resulting delicious food! The dishes are easy to prepare and cook. Some of the ingredients can be hard to find so the author suggests alternatives - as well as providing a list of stockists.

=== THINGS I LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK ===

* Solid, good quality hardback book in a clear, stylish design
* Stays open on its own rather than needing to be weighted down on both sides - very useful!
* Follows my favourite recipe format - on one side of the double-page spread there's the recipe and on the other a full-colour photograph showing what you're aiming to produce
* Standard clear, format for recipes throughout: introductory paragraphy, ingredients then method
* Begins with an almost 50-page introduction to Ghanaian cooking and culture, including herbs, spices, fruit, vegetables and - of course!

Format: Hardcover
This is such a beautiful and thoughtfully produced cookbook. I really love the sections where the author writes about her relationship to the food and culture of Ghana, especially her visit to her Grandma in Ghana! She's a really funny writer and really enjoyed these.

As a vegan I've always been a bit wary of African food as it seems very meat-centric - but there are loads of ways to veganise most of the recipes - which is really refreshing. So far have made the red red and the groundnut (peanut butter) stew - which were both delicious and pretty easy.

Love it!

I'm fortunate enough to have tried Zoe's amazing food at one of her pop-ups a few years ago. It was a real treat! Haven't had a chance to try making any of the meals yet, but i think we're going to give it a go over the weekend. The book itself looks wonderful - the photos look stunning and the amount of information and content is unbelievable - you can really tell this book has been out together by someone who has a genuine passion for their craft. Can't wait to get stuck in!
