Why Nigerian food?

Nigeria has a wide range of cultures, and hundreds of ethnic groups, each of whom has brought their own specialities and dishes to the table of Nigerian cuisine. My particular background is as an Igbo person, a tribe from Southeast Nigeria, around the Niger Delta. Igbo people have their own cultural identity and language, and many aspects of Igbo cuisine have become a culinary staple of the West African diet. 

You can learn a wide range of Igbo recipes and West African dishes with my guidance:

Jollof Rice by Nigerian Chef in Kensington

Jollof Rice

This rice dish is made with tomatoes, onions, and traditionally a small amount of scotch bonnet chilli peppers (these are very hot and you can temper the variety to your taste). Though originally from Senegal, this dish has become a national staple of many West African nations, with each one claiming their own Jollof as the best variation.

Fried Plantain by Nigerian Chef in Kensington

Fried Plantain

You could describe this fruit as a ‘cooking banana’, and they are at their best when they are just on the cusp of over ripeness, when they are sweetest, and some of the sugars ferment. You can mould the plantain into a patty, and fry them in hot oil for a few minutes, until they are beautifully crisp and tasty.

Egusi Soup, by Nigerian Chef in Kensington

 Egusi Soup

This consists of gourd seeds or pumpkin seeds, ground into a paste, and then left to simmer with a range of other tasty ingredients, such as chicken, beef or crayfish. The Egusi has a similar texture to couscous and soaks up flavours and sauces beautifully.

Eba by Nigerian Chef in Kensington


Eba is a kind of Fufu, which has a doughy texture and is great for eating with soup, stew, or meat dishes. You can make it simply from cassava flour and hot water, and when dining, it is rolled into a ball with the fingers and dipped into a sauce or soup.
