If you’ve always been intrigued by the idea of cooking the African way, but you don’t know where to start, my recipe book African Flavours is the right book for you.
This book is about African Soups and Stews, first it introduces some African spices in their botanical and English names to aid recognising the spices. The book further explains in simple language how these spices can be used in cooking fish, meat and poultry before naturally dividing into two sections first stews and the second section is on soups, befitting its title.
The first section is opened with the description of my signature TOMPEP. This is a combination of tomato, scotch bonnet pepper, bell peppers and onions blended into a unique paste. Recipes of 5 African Stews come next and the second section has 15 traditional African Soups. All recipes have clear photographic illustrations. Measurements in grammes, time allocation and application of the right spices in correct volumes are explained in detail.
African meals can be quite tricky, the wrong combination of ingredients can lead to unwanted taste, texture, appearance and an unwanted meal altogether.
I have a simple step by step instruction for every recipe to guarantee you great meals.
African Flavours is available for sale in Hard, Paper and eCopy the link for it is on my resources page.

I am very interested in this type of book. I have tried North African food before and loved it. I am always interested in new flavours so this book sounds very appealing.
Would the majority of ingredients be available in supermarkets or would I need to buy from specialist food stores?
Thanks for coming by Craig,
Yes you will get most of the ingredients in shops. Some ingredients are only found in African shops.
Hi Ronke, first of all, I like the cover of the book. Very bright which I think itâ€™s eye catching.
I think it would be better if the cover page is about soups and stews as you said.
Well, thatâ€™s just my thought. Anyways, I honestly think Iâ€™ll go for African meal (healthy ones) when I felt Iâ€™m tired of eating the same, oriental and western healthy dishes.
Speaking of recipes, from the sound of those recipes you have, there is result where it taste so great or it taste simply off-putting I must say.
Good to hear someone releasing their own book for recipes. Respect!
I’m happy you like my book. Let me know how you get on when you try any of my recipes. Thanks for coming by.
Yeah African food is a very interesting cuisine. I’ve had Middle Eastern, Indian, real Asian and Southern American food, as well as some Cuban. But I haven’t had some African food in a while, other than some spicy West African goat from the Chicago Summer Taste of 2010 and 2013. I’d really like a taste of Ethiopian and Somali cuisine (East African) dishes.
Hi Lakan, I agree with you African meals are very interesting. Please come back to my site for dishes from various African countries. Thanks
I am very intrigued to read your book and also try out all the different African recipes in it! I have always enjoyed African very much. Just a quick question – can you briefly describe what type of recipes are in there as far as flavour, spice etc is concerned please? I do love spicy food 🙂 Also are the recipes low in fat? Please advise. Thank you
This book is mainly on stews and soups. They are all mainly made from vegetables so yes they are low fat. You can always reduce the amount of oil you cook with. Oil seems to be the only fattening ingredient in the recipes. I also have a gallery of healthy African meals for you to see. Thanks for coming by.
haha! awesome, the law of attraction in action! I was just thinking about african foods and herbs as I would love a visit to Kenya and Ghana.
I am sure there are some amazing african foods, way more delicious with the authentic african grown ingredients, in africa. Keeping an eye on this page for different meal idea to make meal time more fun and worldy!
Thank you so much Derek!
Congratulations to you and your book! It seems that you have truly see fruition of your dream and that must be a great feeling! To put all of the recipes that you have found into a book is a great idea because it will make it easier for people that are interested in following your meal plan to do so. Good luck to you and once again congratulations!
Thank you for your encouraging comment.
Great idea to share diet books specially for African there is so much subjects on the internet about African diet, but i recommend that you give more information about the book (Price & links on sites selling the book Etc.).& also it will be amazing if you add a conclusion & star rating for the book.
Your comment is very constructive, I’ll get to work!
