A vegan cookbook that draws its breath from the explosive colours and flavours of West Africa.
Inspired by Zoe Alakija’s British-Nigerian heritage, these eclectic fusion recipes – from jollof arancini to plantain brownies – give a playful, contemporary twist to the joy-infused food of her childhood. If you’ve ever thought of vegan food as bland and boring, the dynamic, vibrant dishes here will surprise and delight. Including soups, stews, mains, snacks, sauces, desserts and drinks, Zoe’s immaculate taste and creative, colourful presentation ensure these are recipes to remember for anyone willing to explore broader, spicier, more environmentally responsible horizons.
‘This book is born of [my] versatility, an integration of my mixed heritage, of merged cultures and diverse influences, that shapes and channels the flavours, ingredients and cookery of these dishes. It’s the story of how I found home through food.’ – Zoe Alakijah
