The Nigerian Kitchen

Thanks for being a great part of this initiative, due to my kind of background and societal setting, it was necessary for a woman to know so much about foods and domestic works in its entire scope.

I learned to make Nigerian foods at a very young age, I think I made my first soup at the age of eleven, I still remember vividly, it was a vegetable soup with cow liver. It was my parent’s duty to prepare food for the family but my dad insisted that I give it a whirl and that was it.

Over the years that followed I made even more Nigerian foods, experimented heavily on different Nigerian recipe and just some years back I thought of setting up the Nigerian Kitchen Initiative – this site, the videos, Facebook page as well as the Weekly newsletters to help folks around the world with making Nigerian Delicious Foods.

It has been a wonderful journey so far, so much has happened and so much is about to happen.

We started with simple – easy to make Nigerian foods, then several other complex recipes, continental dishes, breakfast recipes, dinner recipes etc.

I have set up this page just to hear your opinion on this entire program, have you benefited? Have you tried any of my recipes? Did it turn out right?

Please tell me about your experience in two or three paragraphs with the comment form below. Thanks!

Also tell me a little bit about you.

    For me I have had a good time trying many of the recipes you have on this site. I am also sort of addicted to your newsletters, I can’t wait to have the next one. I live in Abuja Nigeria with my husband and two kids, we so love your recipes please don’t stop.

    You are right, it has been a very interesting year with the Nigerian Kitchen, you have been very busy and it is most appreciated. The Recipe, eGuide and Ingredients Catalogue are fantastic and very good value.
    As you know as we have emailed each other before. I am a English Man and my Wife is Nigerian (Ijaw) and we live in the UK; we have Yoruba and Igbo friends
    I enjoy cooking and have cooked for my Wife and our other West African friends many of the recipes i have learnt from you. I must say the one that sticks in everyone’s mind and has been brought up in subsequent dinner party conversations is the Rivers State Soup or (Native Soup) as we call it !
    Keep up the good work

    Thanks for the info on how to make fried rice. It’s something have been doing but somehow it always turns out too soft or looking different. So i decided to try it exactly the way you illustrated and it was perfect. It was not too soft and the taste was perfect.
    Thank you!

    Good day! thank you for your nigerian kitchen initiative. I incidentally opened your site in looking for some articles about nigerian culture. when i read your recipes , i was quite curious of your FRIED RICE. …my first reaction was that….. ohhhhh….. why fried rice.. there is nothing special about it…. but as i read… oh my GOD……. your recipe captured my interest….and i decided to cook fried rice , the nigerian kitchen style for my future husband. I am a Filipina with a Nigerian boyfriend whom i met online. we decided to meet in less than 2 months from now. So its a very good timing that i can learn how to prepare nigerian foods… thank you so much. Although i feel that i already have the love of my Nigerian boyfriend… i also have and so excited to win his stomach. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS!
