African homemade recipes in times of pandemic

by PE ladies, Mimi Ocadiz

Through a collection of diverse recipes from across Africa – Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Uganda – featuring dishes like fufu, Pondu, and fried rice, it showcases the continent's rich culinary heritage. For migrants, food is a powerful link to home and heritage, shaping identity, fostering community, and providing comfort. The book chronicles how women used food to create joy, care, and connection during the pandemic, highlighting the importance of culinary traditions in fostering resilience and well-being. It is a testament to the vital role that food plays in our lives, both as a source of nourishment and as a means of cultural expression and connection, made accessible to all through globalization.
