About Us

Food is memory. I still close my eyes and can time travel to my best food moments; from grandmas kitchen in Nkoranza making nuhuu (cocoyam porridge) to the long walk for fresh hausa koko in Bolgatanga or the aromas from that basil and thyme marinated sea bass sauce.
 
Traditional cookery is a complex cultural model comprising farming, age-old skills, culinary techniques and ancestral community customs and manners. It is made possible by collective participation in the entire traditional food chain: from farm to fork.
 
In recent times and with globalization, traditional cookery is giving away to modernized food. A trend that can be attributed to varying factors; work, family but most importantly our social networks.

Growing up, I still remember opting to be in the kitchen as my chore than to clean. I still remember my first garden eggs stew at age 9 that had carrot cuts. I remember how my grandma would say some foods are best eaten as leftovers because it is only at the point that all the ingredients settle and food finds equilibrium.
 
Food is simple. It’s how you feel translated through those beautiful garden eggs or lifeless koobi. It is how you want others to feel after they bit and chew of that freshly baked garlic prepped red snapper.
 
Infusing traditional cookery in our new way of life may be the only sustainable approach of ensuring our culinary heritage; our value of local identity, through food is not lost.
