Want Some Great African Cuisines? Start With These Awesome African Cookbooks!

Oh the delightful tastes of African cuisines from all over the continent. Having only had the experience of tasting dishes from the countries of West Africa, I am hooked. I would choose African dishes over any other part of the world because they are more than likely absolutely delicious.

Maybe I tasted the food of a great chef or cook? True. However, so far, there’s never been a dull moment from the African kitchen.

Therefore, as I try and mix something up for myself one day, here are some books that I think to check out for great African dishes…and maybe you should, too.

In Bibi’s Kitchen by Hawa Hassan and Julia Turshen, is due for release in October and it’s already the #1 New Release in African Cooking Food & Wine.

What do you think of when you think of Grandma’s cooking? Already hooked right? Bibi’s means Grandma, and it is with chef Hassan and food writer Julia Turshen that they bring us recipes from South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Comoros, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, and Eritrea.

This isn’t the West African cuisines I’ve fallen head over heels for, but I’m still ALL IN to try some of the East!
