Liberian Cook book

Coming from a background of good cooks and hospitable family members, I naturally developed the flare for cooking and entertaining. I obtained additional interest in food preparation and catering during my studies at the University of Paris/Sorbonne, where I was exposed to French Culture and Cooking.

Upon my return to the United States, I pursued an Internship program in Food Management and Catering at Howard University Hotel, Washington, District of Columbia. Thereafter, I attended the American Food Safety Institute.

As a former student of the above mentioned institutions, I believe strongly in good hygiene and food safety. This is the Second Edition of "African Recipes". The first publication was well complimented by Liberians and Internationals.

I have brought you as close as I can to the Liberian kitchen. With a brief introduction and cultural information, my intention is to explain the setting which produced the recipes. The Liberian Cookbook seeks to combine the culinary cuisine of the 16 major ethnic groups and the African Returnees from the United States of America slavery (the later group sometimes called the Americo-Liberians).

Rice is the stable crop and recipes include rice and cassava leaves, rice and palm butter, rice and sweet potato greens, jollof rice, check-rice with meat, chicken or fish/crawfish gravy, our delicious "Pepper Soup" and "Steamed Crabs".

The Liberian old fashion pound cake, rice bread, sweet potato pone, ginger beer and the famous "Root Bottle" (an aperitif, is also a medicinal drink used mostly by men. Women drink it when necessary in small doses.) are also included in this cookbook that will add to the interest in International Cooking.

Many internationals are fond of Liberian cooking and have mentioned that some of our recipes have the sophisticated flare of gourmet cooking.
