December 3, 2018: The year is almost over!
Last month I was in Ghana, talking to folks about the BETUMI Adinkra Tea Biscuits, now I’m back in the U.S. working on a better version!
Check out my recent posting at betumiblog about the latest addition to the African Cookbook Project, the 1969 52-page booklet Tap Chop.
1) The Ghana Cookbook has just gone electronic. Get your copy of the 2016 Gourmand World Cookbook Award winner on Amazon’s kindle , or Barnes & Noble’s nook, Apple’s iBook store, Kobo e-reader, and many other platforms. Also,
2) I just baked my first batch of the BETUMI Adinkra Biscuits (Cookies) using my new silicone sankofa and gye nyame stamps being developed (next step after the 3D printed prototypes I took to Ghana last March).
3) I’m heading back to Ghana via Washington DC this Saturday. Hope to see some of you the couple of weeks I’ll be there.
