I’ve just returned from Ghana, where we had a successful workshop on using BETUMI’s  Adinkra Cookie Stamps and are field-testing the gluten-free Ghana friendly flour mixes (more on that later). We do have a Limited Edition selection of the cookie stamps for sale. The set includes the 2 stamps and a 2-inch metal biscuit cutter. The stamps are 42 mm in diameter, and the the cutter is 2 inches round. 


The stamps were designed by a Ghanaian designer working from actual Ghanaian adinkra stamps. They are 3D-printed with PLA and sealed with a polyurethane coating. The set is currently priced at US $20.00, plus mailing and handling charges.

Please contact if you are interested in more information or would like to place an order.


BOOKS FOR SALE is the most comprehensive source on the internet for recently published African cookbooks, like The Ghana Cookbook and Zoe Adjonyoh’s Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, or books by Senegalese Pierre Thiam. However, you’re often out of luck when it comes to texts that are a few years older, out-of-print, or published outside the U.S., as is the case with  Tweedie’s (Ghana), or  Shardow (UK) cookbooks below.

Contact me at for more information about these books or to order them.

Asantewaa Tweedie’s self-published all-color 2nd edition (2011) of Melting Pot: Ghanaian Cooking with a Twist, 101 pages. Price: $30.00 plus $4.50 postage and handling.

A Good Soup Attracts Chairs  

by Fran Osseo-Asare
Pelican, 2002. Unfortunately, the original full-color hardback 1993 edition of this book is now sold out, though a few copies are still available from on-line book sellers. The paperback version, which came out in 2002, is in black and white, and the quality of the photographs and paper is marginal. However, the content is still excellent. .
