I have been collecting African recipes for over 20 years and travelling the continent for almost as long. There are few African recipe books available, as most Africans are what I would call 'instinctive cooks'. They have been taught mother to daughter to cook a range of foods and that experience allows them to vary the basic methodology to create new dishes and new variants. However, as the recipes are never written down, just communicated by practice it takes a long time to get hold of a recipe. You actually have to sit down with a cook and convert measurements of handfuls or metric units bought into more familiar Western recipes.
As I gather new recipes I put them up on my main site, Celtnet's African recipes pages. But I have also added a number of African recipes here on this blog, too. I am now putting this page together to link all those recipes and make them more readily visible and available. Here you can also easily find out which region and which country in Africa the recipe comes from.
Below are the links for every region and every country in Africa. The links below take you to the corresponding page on the main Celtnet site, but the recipe links actually link to the recipes on this blog.
The aim, eventually is to have one recipe here for every region and country in Africa. As you can see from the list below, that will be quite a few recipes! If you would like to support this effort, please scroll down to find out about my 'Recipes of Africa' eBook.
