What Books Are There About West Africans Cooking?

Where can I find and buy books about west African cooking? What are the recipe books of West African foods? The West African regions recipes have not been documented as well or as extensively as other global areas. Typically African recipes for sauces, soups and delicious stews which are locally eaten by hand are made by cooks that have practised their cooking skills over the generations. Elders have handed their cooking customs down the generations from mother to daughter and not looked them up in books.

Love Cooking, Love African Cook Books

Origins of recipes have of course been adapted and modern techniques been applied which has lead to documentation of cooking. As a consequence of these changes there are now more authentic African cook books which have been published with comprehensive instructions recently and the list of titles have been growing. West Africa Cooks would like to highlight some of these titles here. A west African cook book offers a fascinating glimpse into the African kitchen and into food culture.
