Afro Vegan: Family Recipes From A British-Nigerian Kitchen
A vegan cookbook that draws its breath from the explosive colours, contrasts, cultures and flavours of West Africa. Introducing Zoe Alakija, a London-based cook, whose recipes blend modern British flavours with the rich colours and tastes of her Nigerian upbringing.
African food in general, and Nigeran food in particular, is on the rise in the UK and dishes like Cheesy Kokoro take European vegan food far beyond the more muted flavours and colours that we are used to. Zoe's immaculate balance of tastes, combined with playful presentation, ensures that these are recipes to remember for those willing to explore broader, more environmentally responsible horizons.
From Jollof Arancini to Nutty Plantain Brownies, Zoe gives a playful, contemporary twist to the joy-infused food of her childhood.
