It’s the first of its kind. Lists a very broad range of foods found within the West African community. Gives the nutritional facts and extra tips. It will be relevant to most African and Caribbean food as well. I recommend it to anyone whose diet comprises of African or Caribbean cuisines.
I found this book very useful as it clarifies what the author discusses in her other book (Healthy, West African & Wise). It has been helpful to discover the many names and nutritional benefits of the traditional West African foods I eat and I have recommended it to lots of people.

Fascinating book. Interesting facts about our food, facts that I didn’t know! I am proud to be West African knowing that our foods provide various health benefits apart from their nutritional value. Great pictures too.
