It has now been several years since confidently announcing I would be setting up Betumi’s Kitchen.

As I have posted in the past, I rushed back from Ghana in March, 2020 when the pandemic hit, and all those ambitious plans were put on hold until I was able to be vaccinated, and boosted, and still am waiting . . .

No more waiting:  here’s to getting back to business!

Afehyiapa! Welcome to 2022, another new year. (Hope never fails) I have now made plans to revamp  BETUMI’S KITCHEN, where we will (finally) begin selling Ghanaian custom-made items including the Adinkra Cookie Stamp kits (Gye Nyame and Sankofa), aprons, quilted pot holders, and Bolgatanga serving baskets. I will soon announce when it goes live.

 If you’re new here:  Akwaaba! Welcome to BETUMI: The African Culinary Network.(BEH-two-me is an Akan word meaning “can do.”) Since 1997  (24 years!) this site (formerly Ananse’s Web: The African Culinary Network) has been connecting scholars, professionals, home cooks and others who delight in African cuisine and food history. This is a space to discover, document, and share information on the vast and fascinating culinary heritage of Africa. Feel free to explore the site and join our on-line community.) We will soon be setting up an online site, too, to sell Ghana-inspired and made items.
