YAM: The story begins

Yams are eaten by Africans and Caribbeans alike with different varieties involved. It is comparable to potatoes here in the UK as a food staple but yam is more on the rugged side.

Join us for the ride as we find out why, how and where we eat yams here in the UK. You may find yourself opting for some yam cooked in your own peculiar style too. 😁

A famous author, 'Chinua Achebe' in his novel 'Things fall apart', portrayed how highly valued yams are to some cultures. Check out this blog by The Kitchen Butterfly to see what I mean. 

Never fear, some of us just eat yams for the sake of filling our tummies 😜 and because it is yummy πŸ˜‹ too.

Stay close for The Yam journey. 😊

Resourceful ...#lunchnigerianstyle by DeJuTT

My friend was telling me how a #wastenot or #leftovers project became a work of art and a 'filling' meal. 😁

She had Sunday roast with all its trimmings the day before and there was bean pudding known as moin moin and stewed spinach soup (efo riro) left over.

Now, adding asparagus, green beans and sweet corn from Sunday dinner and "voila!!" πŸ˜—

What's not to love in that picture ?
Healthy, low in calories, lots of fibre and that is lunch done #nigerianstyle! 😁


You can share your own story or discovery here too.
Follow the links to learn how to make moin moin and efo riro for your enjoyment.

Looking forward to hearing 'your' story

Calling all 'sweet tooth's out there. Introducing Sorel or Zobo jelly !

I see and I share viz..

Sorel or Zobo as known by the Caribbeans and Africans is often used to make refreshing inexpensive drinks on the continents.

A previous blog in this thread refers to this.

Today we see someone with a sweet toothπŸ€“(Zita Bernice Tiena) using it to make a jelly! A jelly with more benefits you can say. πŸ˜….

Why not see for yourself what you make of it. After all, summer will soon be here. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

and the children might need something in between 'boredom' sessions too. 😁

What up peeps! 😎

Me American? No way! Just messing with you.

I've been away for a while on holiday. Well not holiday really but attending to some necessary family engagements in Nigeria.

 I shall be sharing with you a few pictures from my trip later.

In the mean time I came across this 😎genius video.
It highlights
1 - the rich variety of foods from a cross section of Nigeria
2 - the adventures of intercultural interactions in a marriage relationship. Essentially, the difficulties of accepting another's food palate.
3 - and finally how it can become a fun 'discovery channel'.

That's what we are about in Fally's Food Hut. The difference is that we have spread our blanket across a wider spectrum; The whole of Africa and The Caribbean.

Let's not be strange bedfellows but engage and interact like this couple eventually did.

Maybe I can take the role played by the counsellor too πŸ€’πŸ’†.

So happy Saturday morning 😘😊
Step into my world (my office😜) and enjoy this video.
In itself, it is good therapy.πŸ‘

Be with you soon,
