Hi… my name is Nma. I am quirky, and what you would call a nerd. As a growing girl, I disliked ‘going into the kitchen’ because I was so ‘lazy’. In fact, my laziness when it came to cooking could be said to have superseded epic proportions! At a point all I could cook was ‘jollof supergetti’ for my brothers.
While my father was alive (may GOD rest his soul), he used to have me make him fresh, oil-less okra soup and boy did I hate it! As the years went by, I started falling in love with art. And the necessity to cook for others, and myself, pushed me to look for ways to rustle up simple but delicious meals. From then, I became more interested in cooking and started developing recipes. I now see cooking as an art, and I consider it my own contribution to the arts in general. Cooking has inspired my project – “Dine Africa”, which is set to show Africa’s culinary culture and exotic cuisines alongside its wide variety of ethnic nationalities, cultures and enormous land mass.
Please join me as I celebrate the arts through African (Nigerian) cooking; and through my mother’s recipes (some of which I tweaked to fit my choices). I shall also share some easy kitchen tips for the ‘lazy’ cooks like me.
Join me as we celebrate food, love and life. Dine Africa with me.
