There is nothing like home cooked food

My mother is Nigerian and in true Nigerian style will not let me leave the family  home without eating a home cooked meal. It is very hard to resist!

One of my favourite Nigerian dishes is gari. It is has a slight sharp taste which is usually tempered by a rich tomato stew with meat and okra. My gosh – heavenly.

Yellow gari

It is sooo tasty and sooo comforting. I eat out a great deal but nothing, nothing tops my mother’s food. I suppose because it is made with love.

    Eba and okra. But I personally prefer Pounded Yam with Vegetable soup and Bushmeat. That’s the life!
