The Story Behind the Cookbook

My ethnicity is one half Nigerian (or Yoruba to be specific) and one half American.  I was born in the US but spent much of my young life in the African West Coast, in Nigeria. 

All of my life I have enjoyed Nigerian cuisine.  While in Rome many years ago we went to eat at Nigerian family’s home.  It had been many years since I had tasted of the traditional Yoruba foods and what a delight to eat those seasoned greens, okra and a delicious fiery stew, to name a few dishes, again. I ate heartily! 

Although I enjoy the foods from many different cultures Nigerian cuisine is my comfort food. The food I know and grew up with.

My mother learned to cook the Yoruba cuisine while we lived in Nigeria and being the true artist (by trade) that she is mastered the flavors and still serves these familiar dishes to our extended family today.

My sister has her Nigerian favorites and I have mine but our extended families enjoy them all.  This cookbook, African Cooking Yoruba Style, is the compilation of my mother’s Nigerian recipes along with tidbits about how she and we enjoyed the foods and cooked them. 

Each cook, no matter the cuisine, has their own way of preparing a dish. These are my mother’s Nigerian recipes. Her way and her style of preparing the traditional Nigerian dishes. She has cooked these dishes for dinner parties, family dinners and just small family gatherings. They are delicious and nutritious.
