It has been several coviduous years since confidently announcing I would be setting up Betumi’s Kitchen. Much has happened since then.

I no longer have any Bolga baskets for sale. And 3-D printing the adinkra stamps has proven to be cumbersome, and limiting. I attempted to develop silicone molds for the stamps, but couldn’t attach handles. Now I’m attempting to make silicone molds and fill them with an epoxy that will be more durable and can be washed in a dishwasher. In the meantime, I still have a few 3-D printed ones available. I’ll keep you updated here.

 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 (26 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, along with my twitter (@betumi) and instagram sites provide 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.)
