Deconstructed: Tigernut Crumble with Mango Cream & Candied Zobo Flowers

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 21, 2016
I love to repurpose things in the kitchen – whether its turning zobo flowers into sauce after making an infusion or making a crumble with leftover tigernut chaff from making kunnu aya, the milk. It works. Rather beautifully too. Here’s what you have to do. Take your favourite crumble recipe and switch it up a bit […]

Layered Dessert: Zobo & Lime Cheesecake

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 18, 2016
This cheesecake combines zobo jelly with lime cream and crushed ginger cookies. It is a rendition of a blackberry and lime cheesecake I made a few years ago which had me smitten. One thing I’ve learnt in the process of making jellies and things with gelatin is the importance of testing. A great lesson taught […]

Frozen Desserts: Palm Wine Granita & Soursop Sorbet

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 17, 2016
This dessert is the result of conversations. From Port Harcourt to Lagos, face to face and What’s App. First of all, it was Zina. We sat eating dodo and stew before our Eba and Egusi soup, when she told me about a Palm Wine granita her mum had given her an idea for. You know how […]

Zobo Jelly With Tigernut Panna Cotta| The New Nigerian Kitchen

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 15, 2016
I’ve been exploring making jellies with Nigerian fruits, flowers and nuts. My first attempt – a tiger nut pudding was beautiful, if soft set. It triggered a desire to make a panna cotta of tiger nuts, helped along by gelatine. Then came the agbalumo jelly which while great had a funny texture thanks to agar-agar. […]

Agbalumo Posset

by Kitchen Butterflyon February 25, 2016
Lool, if you are tired of me and my Agbalumo experiments, imma have to ask you to step aside for a minute or two because there’s more. I’ve been wanting to make this posset since I first realised how acidic Agbalumo was. How it curdled milk. Yep, this has been in my plan for a year […]

Mango & Passion Fruit Swirls in Vanilla Ice Cream

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 21, 2015
Flavour prints and profiles and stamps. Ice Cream for breakfast. Anyone? I have no issues exploring them over and over and over again. Each new canvas throws up nuances, subtle differences till we ‘appropriate’ all the deliciousness. This is the case with myself, mangoes and passion fruit. My daughter had been bugging me to make […]
