A fresh approach to Nigerian food. One that recognizes the change in ‘function of food’ – from sustenance for farming to eating for pleasure and in celebration – welcome to The New Nigerian Kitchen.
As I shared in my ‘manifesto‘, The New Nigerian Kitchen is not an attempt at being outrageous. It does not disrespect the foundation and tennets upon which Nigeria cuisine was and founded. Instead, it is about a fresh approach to Nigerian cuisine that recognises the foundation and embraces the new possibilities. It’s about the novel use of technique and technology, about bringing to the fore aspects, ingredients, dishes previously played down. It’s about hope and possibility and re-imagining that the future can be greater than what was, will be greater than the past.
Here are recipes as an introduction – tried, tested & beloved. There are a whole lot more but this is a guide.
