This is a topic of discussion for everyone except Nigerians. A discussion about the experience of sitting at a Nigerian dining table or visiting a Nigerian restaurant. I have discussed this issue with Jamaicans, the English, Asians, Maori's, Trinidadians, Gambians, South Africans, Dutch, Germans etc...etc...etc. I love Nigerian food and whatever people may say about 419..when it comes to the food. Nigerian food has attitude... serious attitude.
One of the aims at West Africa Cooks is to combine food, fun and information to your day whatever the mood. We are lucky enough to have an established Caterer on board who agreed to be take time out of his busy schedule for an interview. Cyril Roy Macauley is a damn good Caterer with years of experience - I should know I have tried him and he does not fit the stereotype of 'late, slow and slapped up greasy ass food in your face with a sweaty smile'.
Well, I do not intend to write about the laborious ways of cooking fufu or getting it right, we will leave that to one of the many West African Chefs that will grace our website in the next few months. I have never attempted to cook fufu but I have watched my mother get her back into it...and I did pass the water and the Guinness at the same time upon her request.
Fufu deserves a lot more than someone as lowly as me to write about. I wanted to give it the respect it deserved so I put some questions on Facebook and waited for the replies
