The rich and sultry blend of meats, tropical fruits, vegetables, grains, spices, and oils that served as the foundation of West African life for centuries are featured in this beautifully illustrated cookbook. Recipes include everything from ginger beer and peppery fried black-eyed pea fritters to baked green bananas in orange syrup and curried rice with beef. As the recipes are prepared, readers learn about the history of the lands and the proverbs used to spice up the West African language. Color photos highlight the exotic dishes and line drawings detail West African art. A glossary and source of tropical foods are included and will not only be helpful for readers unfamiliar with West African cooking, but they will also interest those readers who have wanted to cook traditional West African recipes but have been unable to find the right ingredients.
