African food is bold and colourful, with rich earthy flavours and strong spicy undertones. The African Kitchen is the first book to combine the thrill of the safari with the excitement of pan-African cooking. Josie Stow takes us through a day in the life of a safari kitchen, from breakfast to nightcaps - you can enjoy game drive picnics, glamourous evening banquets, and a traditional Sengalese feast complete with hand washing ceremony. These meals can easily be re-created at home for all occasions. Ingredients such as chicken, corn, couscous, chillies and coriander are all readily available, but can be combined in new and exciting ways to create a truly African flavour.
