Pepperfruit-cured Salmon

by Kitchen Butterflyon July 10, 2017
Yes. Pepper fruit cured. I knew I wanted to use it for the way I thought the spicy seeds would cut the chewy fish and add aroma. My desire would be to cure white, local fish but this is a good place to begin.  And I’m glad to say it worked. Take some processed pepper […]

Akara Sandwich, Remixed :)

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 18, 2017
Because some people might come for me if I call this Akara Burger – the original bean fritter in fresh bread mix. Random, I have a colleague who can’t eat fresh bread if it isn’t pressed together. Hear me – he takes a loaf, slice and then presses it down till all the rise, the […]

Made in Ghana: Midunu Chocolates

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 13, 2017
There are many things that soothe my soul – handcrafted, locally produced chocolate are some of them. I fell in love with Ghanaian chocolate in 2011 – for the flavour, but also for the heritage contained in the brown and dark bars. And so these boxes, from Selassie of Midunu are extra extra special for many […]

What Shall We Call It – D’Asun, DundunAsun, AsunDundun, Asundu[n]?

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 12, 2017
You can see it right? That it doesn’t matter what you call it, its delicious any which way. Three things…wait five: I’m from Edo state and yam is in our blood. In fact, I daresay my bones are made from the creamiest, most delicious tubers of yam. I love fried yam. And goatmeat. I remember […]

Why Do We [Nigerians] Call Snails Congo Meat?

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 10, 2017
I’ve always wondered why snails are called Congo meat. What did the Congolese do to for us to take on that name? Look, if you know Nigerians, we are not easy to award accolades just for the fun of it, or append labels just because. So for us to refer to this in many parts […]

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 9, 2017
Sunday’s recipe, early….so you can shop all you like and prep for Sunday. I love the texture of Nigerian snails – the crunch and the krum krum and because I’d done the Snail Jollof version, it was easy to come up with this switch. Essentially, I took some cooked snails And chopped them into bits […]
