Food Gallery.......😎

Introducing 'Yamarita' and prawn/ fish pepper sauce;




 Essentially this is fried battered yam along with prawns in a special hot sauce.
πŸ‘ Tasty party small chops; supplied by DeJuTT catering - 07939 141850
Another innovative Nigerian creation.

Next is the stand alone 'Okro soup' fondly referred to as 'Asepo' by the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria.



Cooked with a wide range of Seafoods, smoked turkey and assorted meats and eaten with a supple mould made with dried yam flour (Amala).
This was a friend's 'snuggle slipper' menu for the Christmas. That soup was 'rich....πŸ˜ƒ, the kind you linger over because there's so much to pick out of the Soup.

So folks, don't stay quiet or shy. Send us what you've got and we'll do our best to share.

Looking forward to celebrating your business or your skills in 2017...

A 'new creation' by 9jafoodie

There should be a law, I think , against people who do their utmost to wrap us round their little fingers with their tantalising kitchen productions......😁.
Anyway, that's what makes good business and ...There is 'self control ' too. So we shall struggle to share this one and constructively decide when we will cook ours later. πŸ˜‘

9jafoodie rice
Is what she has named this one but the concept is very simple and as I often interject, can be modified to your taste or preference.


The author says,

Follow the link and see for yourself. Does her technique remind you of what we have shared here before?  Let's chat. 
What if you did that with a cooked deboned fish and crayfish mix instead and served it with 'πŸ‘Œ' for lack of a better word. (Attitude?...). Lord, have mercy.
Again, no messing with plum tomatoes and all...

She talks of serving the rice with jollof chicken 

So apologies in advance if it seems like I am collaborating with Ronke Edoho of 9jafoodie to cause excessive salivation this morning, but good things need to be shared. 

So what innovative storm have you created in your kitchen or what is your unique presentation style that you feel should make people order from you?

This is your stage, make yourself known. 
Send us an email or even a short video to fallyvltd@gmail.com and we will help you cast your net further for clients.

Till next time...

This is deep! It will change your cooking forever.... If you are not Caribbean 😁

Not to worry, we shall definitely be going round to other traditions as we discover them or "you" share with us. You can leave a link in my comment box here, on Facebook, on Twitter or wherever you come across it. Also via email to fallyvltd@gmail.com.

Back to business:
Caribbean green seasoning recipes:



I am going to give you two because there are many variants and as with every thing modern, things change as you go along and you can modify to your taste with ingredients you are more familiar with. 

#1. From our friend Chris again at an older website http://chrisdelarosa.com/caribbean-green-seasoning/


#2. From Cheryl at CloseKitchen.com on YouTube and on Instagram



Why two? From the differences, you can see where you want to fall in or what you would change.
Chris used lots of 'sweet pepper' types. You can use those which you are familiar with and like.
 Cheryl added Scotch Bonnet and removed the seeds, you may want to keep the seeds in.

Main things we find added are the fresh greens; parsley, thyme, chives, scallions or onions and garlic. 

Finally, you may be like me, going down discovery lane as I learn about a new but prominently featured herb, "Chadon Beni" in true Caribbean style green seasoning. However, if you don't find it, you could use Coriander instead. 

Here's a video from Chris about this legendary herb.



All done now. 

Enjoy your experiments, share with friends, (after tasting and you give yourself a πŸ‘πŸ˜‚) Don't let our foods 'leave a bad taste' in anyone's mouth. Lol!

Look forward to hearing from you all about your different traditions so we can bring them to light here; and about your Afro Caribbean shops too.

So enjoy your holidays and we'll be back later.

Hello friends,
 How's the experimenting getting on? Don't forget to invite a friend for lunch and they could perhaps rate your cooking; from cardboard -------> lip smacking good and in between πŸ˜….
Do let us know how it goes.

If you simply can't cook, I just hope you placed your orders with caterers in time otherwise hold a New Year Dinner instead.

Today, I'm sharing a Nigerian Fish Recipe from sisijemimah.com


and a Caribbean Prawn Recipe from caribbeanpot.com. (😐 found some use for pumpkin which I have not cooked before now.)


These meals are a posted, with regards, to my 'pescatarian' friend and to those of us who 'just want to have something different'.

Unboxing...❌ Unbagging...✔ "Simpli Quick Frozen African Yam Cubes"

Hi.
I was out shopping yesterday at Ades Cash and Carry in Charlton when I came across these packaged frozen yam cubes and thought to try them out.
                                
It is packaged in Nigeria, 500g of frozen yam cubes per pack. 

In a previous blog, I mentioned that some people do freeze store their peeled and cut yam as it doesn't keep for long in the pantry or kitchen storage. Simpli Foods have gone one step further and done all peeling and cutting, of hopefully select yam pieces, for us.

When opened, this is what a whole packet looks like and the advice given is to cook from frozen

I put about half a packet in a pot and covered the yam cubes with boiling water. You can add salt to taste.  I boiled at moderate heat for about 15 minutes. The idea generally, is to boil till soft, test poke with a knife or fork. 

I served up half of the yam cooked with fried eggs containing onions, sweet peppers, black pepper, sea salt and mushroom and some of my precooked Nigerian stew.


Comments:
It was well tasty and proved to be good quality yam. Each bag cost £2.99, not bad value for money. Essentially, one would be paying for convenience, seeing as one wouldn't have to hunt for good yams in the shops, no problem with storage as it would go straight into the freezer. It would be particularly good for young students or adults living alone. A packet could provide 2-3 servings.

So for now, I am aware that it is available in my local Ades Cash and Carry but you can check in your local African and Caribbean food shop for it's availability. The  Simpli Foods website also has a search engine to show where their suppliers are located worldwide.

Leave any comments in the box below or let us know if your local cash and carry or supermarket even, has these products in store and we will share with others. 
Also tell us if you are caterer who cares for some publicity or you have some cooking skills to display. You can email us directly.

Thanks for joining us today till next time.

I have found one! ...& I must share πŸ˜†

Tasty Jerk Pork


In case, you have been in doubt or confused about the purpose of this blog, that is essentially what it is; sharing and caring.
Sharing African and Caribbean recipes, daily cooking tips, shopping haunts and tips.

'Why?', you may ask; because not everyone knows these things and the fact that we want our 'foods' to be more easily accessed.
This could be by cooking it themselves or linking with a caterer who knows their stuff such as we would advertise on these pages. Nuff said, back to sharing. πŸ˜…

This Tasty Jerk Pork dish from Caribbeanpot.com has me salivating already. I love Caribbean spices, they never fail to add taste to a dish and I often try their variants in my own cooking. This could make a tasty addition to your Christmas table setting or even replace the turkey if you are not into all that hype. If you don't eat Pork, then why not try it on some other type of meat? 



Give it a try, and 'share this blog, if you care'. Give someone else a chance to partake of a good thing.πŸ‘

If you know you are good at preparing such meals and can cater for a fee, drop us an email and we will link with your audience.

So have a nice weekend, don't stress, one step at a time and you'll get things done.

A YAM collaboration for the Newbies πŸ˜™

Yam in African and Caribbean countries often serves as a filling breakfast or can be a light lunch. However, because of the cost of importing it into the UK and the time it takes travelling, finding good yam can be challenging. Nonetheless, it has its benefits.

Good yam, should feel largely firm all over without any squishy bits. Scabs can be cut off where initially the yam may have started deteriorating but dried up afterwards.
Yam doesn't store for too long and some people peel it, clean it and cut it into reusable sizes before storing it in the freezer. (For shorter cooking times, cut the yam into smaller pieces, though not too small or else it will turn into mush when cooking)

If you do store your yam in the freezer, you would have to wait for it to fully thaw before cooking. All peeled yam, needs to be immersed in a bowl of water before cooking if you want to avoid discolouration due to exposure to air..

The 'collaboration' is that

- I have a video from Chris (foodfaq) originally from the Caribbean showing how yam is prepared and boiled. (He has decorated his with beef stew but doesn't actually cook it in this video)


-And I have a young man on the NigerianFoodChannel stir up some egg stew mix that would make you want to eat up at least 2 to 3 pieces of yam. Do remember you can always spice it to your taste.


So for a wholesome tasty breakfast, go get yourself some yam and try this. 
Invite your friends unfamiliar with yam, to give it a go by sharing this blog with them.

For good measure, I have added a link to some BBC yam recipes too. Click here

Share your experiments with your friends. Maybe they'll going looking for some YAM themselves😊.

Do leave your comments or links for recipes, caterers or shops you would like to share with us, in the comment box below. You can also email us directly.

Bon Appetit!

A festive drink from The Caribbean.....going round the world!

Sorrel Drink..
Imma, blogging at Immaculate bites, shares her take on one of my favourite naturally made drinks. I love the aromatic sensation from the cloves and ginger combined with the tangy taste of sorrel. I particularly like to have mine warm as it chases away the winter blues. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Join Imma here as she also gives a bit of gist about 'the travels of sorrel' and shares her recipe. 



I have included a you tube video to give the traditional Caribbean option too. 


It's funny how we find ourselves sharing similar tastes even when we may need a visa to even visit each other's countries.

Don't forget we are building a platform here, where we get to know what's being served up in the pots of other nationals in Africa and the Caribbean and show off ours too to potential new customers.

Take up your opportunity to be in the spotlight by leaving your business link in the comment box below or emailing us directly at fallyvltd@gmail.com.

Later....keep busy in your kitchens.🍴

Manna Superstores Woolwich

This shop is one of my favourite haunts down SE18. Owned by a pleasant mannered Ghanaian couple, I often go there for select yam tubers and bottled 'shitto'.

Shitto is a deep fried hot sauce with lots of pepper, some fish or crayfish and other spices. It is a Ghanaian specialty. 'Spicy and nice πŸ˜…'

Fried or boiled yam with shitto, together are something else. You must try it sometime.

Perhaps you can go there

Manna Superstores -30 Thomas St, Thamesmead West, London SE18 6HT;

Or ask at your local African and Caribbean food store for their best shitto and get yourself some yam or plantain even and let me know how it goes.

They are good at stocking all things Ghanaian and more, so if you in an experimental mode, that's the place to go.

Yesterday, I came across these when I visited the store; small green garden eggs or pea aubergine and coco yam leaves. (unusual..πŸ˜’)

Coco yam leaves are sometimes referred to as Taro or Kontomire by the Ghanaians and can be used for vegetable stew as described in yesterday's blog.

Seeing as these items were together in store, I figured there must be an indigenous recipe to be discovered ....I found two.πŸ˜ƒ. 

1. Coco yam leaves soup courtesy of Aftrad Village Kitchen

2. Coco yam leave soup with groundnut paste. 





Those greens have definitely sparked my interest, especially with all the rave about our health. I will be giving it a try. 
Otherwise simply add the Coco yam leaves to vegetable stew and chew on the garden egg raw, so much health benefits therein, and I am told they are on weekly supply to the shop.


Have a smashing weekend and leave comments or links to your own shopping haunts in your area or proven caterer per excellence in the box below. You can also contact us by email.

A contemporary 'vegetable stew' (efo), made with leafy greens

Hi all,

Thanks for all your viewings of this blog, it is not taken for granted.

We hope we to remain relevant to you and your interests, as far as African and Caribbean dishes in the diaspora are concerned.
Let us know if we are missing some treasured meal, cooking or presentation technique that you believe we should know about. Leave us a comment or link in the box below or email us directly.

To those who are out to try new dishes from other countries, you are most welcome. 😊.




Today I would like to introduce a vegetable stew recipe from 9jafoodie.com which can be tweaked to match whatever country you come from. 

Essentially, it is a 'stir fry' of leafy greens, eg Spinach, Kale or callaloo in heated palm oil with cooked tender pieces of meat or fish.

The choice of spices used in cooking as well as type of meat/fish, largely influences the taste of the vegetable (efo) stew. (Some variations are included at the bottom of the linked page)


The final blend of greens, meat/fish and palm oil makes a suitable escort for boiled potatoes, boiled yam, rice, pasta, plantain or can be consumed with a supple mould of cornmeal flour, oat flour or yam flour etc. 
It is best eaten freshly made but can be stored in the freezer and warmed in small portions when needed.


For possible UK suppliers of African and Caribbean spices check:

http://londonist.com/2016/03/the-best-afro-caribbean-food-shops-in-london http://www.afrocarib.co.uk/herbs-and-spices.html or
http://adesfoods.com/



Meanwhile, check out this 'presentation' making the rounds;
                              of 'vegetable stew' with a Garri mould, also known as Eba.
                                                        What a show! πŸ˜€



Enjoy your meal & hope to hear from you soon.

A weekend with Rita cooking 'finger licking' food.

So I was at a friend's party on Saturday. It was her 40th birthday.

Set up was lovely, done by the celebrant herself. 
Lots of friends past and present, a time to reminisce, catch up and create even more good memories with good food and good music. 
It wasn't too rowdy either, no 'Aunty' scowling at the food servers, to put an extra helping of everything as she was 'that' important.... The food was good. πŸ˜™. In fact, another person had a naming ceremony the previous day with the same caterer's food. So here she is;

Our Caterer of the day 

and some of the dishes provided on the behest of the celebrant. It all went down well. My plate is the empty one at the end. πŸ˜….

No need to salivate, her contact details are on the banner in the picture above. She is based in South East London and you can contact her for your orders and party requests.

If you are outside London, watch out for more recipes and videos in this space.

You could be a Senegalese, Camerounian, South African, Jamaican, Ugandan caterer or you have this meal yet to be celebrated from any where in Africa or The Caribbean and you want to share the good things about it.
This is the place to be.

You can leave a link or a message in the comment box below or get in touch with us via email.

All rise!!!........For Jollof Rice πŸ’‚πŸ™‹

Ah, at least, if  nothing else, that meal is 'recognised' here.



The number one party representative for the Africans.
If nothing else, we would definitely eat chicken or meat of some sort when we show up at your party. πŸ˜‚
(Neighbour, please take note😐 and it's not Jalous or Jallof rice either. No worries. So long as it's well cooked. I know you like it too)

I understand that are long running arguments as to where Jollof rice originated between Ghanaians and Nigerian's and Wikipedia claims it may be from neither.
One thing we agree on though is that it is tasty and goes down well at all times of the day and on all occasions and non occasions too. A staple meal..

So today let's have a recipe for the Ghanaian version and some helpful tips for the Nigerian version, which really isn't much different either.



You can always adjust whatever recipe you choose and make it your own unique taste.

So take it away. Have a nice weekend with your Jollof rice.
All you party caterers, go show your stuff and you can share your pictures etc with us.

Nigerian style Stew...without the splatter

When you enter the average Nigerian's kitchen on the day they are cooking stew it's like 'boil, toil and double trouble' πŸ˜…. 'Avoid the splash of hot sauce'πŸ“£...

I'm cooking stew today and I wanted some less rigorous method with less frying and I remembered this method I read on 9jafoodie.com.



This would also be handy for those of you trying to learn how to cook 'that red stew'. Moderate the Scotch bonnet to suit your taste. It can be quite hot if you're not used it.

Can't talk much now, off to cook...

Let us profile You, your business as an Afro Caribbean Caterer or your 'go to' shop for your ingredients here in the UK (for now) and people could be reading about you next.

Support a brother...


Riaz Phillips is a young man sharing the same passion that drives these pages and which is the ethos of Fally's Food Hut. The video above summarises the whole story; we need to put the word on the street & recipes into people's kitchens, with regards to our delicious African and Caribbean dishes.

He is in the process of launching of his new book
 'Belly Full'; full of the history of the progress of Caribbean and African Restaurateurs in the UK. It is not short of gorgeous pictures to go with it. A good 'presentation' I would say. A good offer for a late Christmas present. πŸ˜ƒ

So if you, like Riaz, would like to know about the stories behind our indigenous foods or you would like to go on an Afro Caribbean food explorer journey in the UK, pre-order his book and prepare for the trip of a lifetime. Follow the link below:


Now back to us, Riaz has done it for some. How about you? Where on the continents are you from? Are you an experienced caterer looking to extend your reach? Where in your locality do you shop for your local food stuffs? 

We are here to share that information for you and bring more customers to you. Now is the time to get your foot in the door before the rush. Email us with your own presentation or pitch, with either pictures or videos and we will take it from there or leave a link from your social media platform in the comment box below.

Cornmeal porridge as an alternative breakfast

I know, it's way past breakfast time but it's been on my mind....

These days, when you need to borrow a brain to scan the 'traffic light' charts on your processed cereal boxes, I tried to recollect some common grain flours we could use in our cupboards for breakfast and corn came to mind.

 There are several variants of corn based breakfasts or meals from country to country.  (What's yours?.where do you come from? What's different in your native recipe?.., tell us in the comment box below)

This recipe by our popular Chef Ricardo on youtube, comes from Jamaica. He shows how we can make corn gruel into a tasty warm meal well suited for our early starts during the winter or for an inexpensive light dinner before you cosy up in your duvet for the night.

You can sweeten or spice up according to your taste as you get the hang of it. Watch out to make just what you can finish.

This should definitely leave you with some change in your pocket. Don't forget to use up your coconut milk on time as it might not keep for too long in the fridge.

So where do you shop, let us know and we'll share with those who don't know.
Most of today's ingredients can be found in the 'foreign countries food aisle' in your local supermarket.

Enjoy your porridge, stay warm.

Weekend lunch Nigerian Style; Oha soup.

Good morning all!

How was your week?
Restful weekend? I know, 'I wish'......, I can hear some of you saying with a sigh.
Cooking up a storm or wondering what to do...?

If it is the latter, let me take you on a journey.

Today we meet Sisi Jemimah another blogger.
She is going to be showing us how to prepare 'oha or oha-soup'.


 This can be eaten with carbs based meals such as Fufu, ground rice, cornmeal, wheatflour or even oat flour made into a smooth mouldable or supple consistency and dipped into the soup before swallowing.

For some of us, this would be a nostalgia trip; but then why reminisce, take a bold step and recreate this yourself.

For ingredients,
in London, Ades Foods Stores (http://www.adesfoods.com/) are ever resourceful and you can follow this link for other stores which may stock them (http://londonist.com/2016/03/the-best-afro-caribbean-food-shops-in-london)


 If you are thinking that's too much hassle right now and you are in South East London,
(apologies to those who aren't) let me hook you up with a caterer's invitation to supply you with the real deal.


Check her out on Facebook -Chimamandanata Kitchen @CLFK.delicacies.

Fallys Food Hut is here to help and share whatever good tips and information are out there in the UK for the production of our indigenous Afro Caribbean meals.

As usual, leave a comment or suggestion below. Introduce us to your 'go-to' caterers or shops and we can share. Together, we can promote those good things about our food.
Alternatively, you can leave me a message at fallyvltd@gmail.com.

I look forward to hearing more from folks from other parts of eastern, western or northern Africa or the Caribbean.

Let's spice up these pages πŸ˜„even more

A suitable Caribbean Lunch

I looooove Jerk Chicken. I used to look forward to when my husband would bring it home from work and I would make it stretch for as long as possible or hide my bit in fridge out of sight.

This looks ravishing. If the number of subscribers on her channel are anything to go by, it should be as tasty as it looks.

Bon appetit!

Your choice caterer would probably look even better doing her stuff here in our hut too.

Let us know those whose skills you value. Leave a comment below or send an email to us through fallyvltd@gmail.com

Are you out shopping for your next indigenous dish?

Do the hash tag #fallysfoodhut with pictures of your local market or shop posted on Google maps and let's get UK wondering what all the fuss is about..

Introducing Fally's Food Hut

So we are here again.....what are we about?...

I don't know if I have said it before; 'Afro Caribbean foods are the real deal ...'

When I was younger and I returned home to Africa, I used to continually refer to the beauty of foodstuffs, prepared and natural, abroad.

Now that we are older, we realise that there is a whole lot of natural goodness in our meals and foods. We often look back in nostalgia to what we once frowned upon.

Yes, you may say I am biased being of African descent and rightly so. Everyone takes pride in their native or authentic dishes and should do so as this is what makes us 'different' from one another.

My 'bif' 😀 now is that just as the 'curry', 'spaghetti bolognese', 'chow mein', 'humus' 'tacos' and such like have become common features on the menu here in the UK, our lovely African and Caribbean dishes need to be stepped up some more.

Funny, you can now find the odd wrinkled plantain, okro, some gari, palm oil(!) - yes palm oil, etc in the supermarket aisle but, does the non indigene know what to do with it or is he/she even 'bovered'? �

No one can tell them better than us. The scores of Kitchen/ restaurant proud Afro Caribbean into catering, food exhibitions during our social or corporate events have a 'story' to tell.

My aim is to be the put those 'stories' out there. To get our friends outside of the continent drawn to the tastes we have grown to love and celebrate, with us..

Watch this space... We are Fally's Food Hut. Join us, make your presence known. Share your social media platform link with us.

Perhaps you have a unique story to tell about a local pride, new ideas for meal preparations or presentations worth making a noise about. That's what we are here for. Short video clips, YouTube links, Web pages, the lot. It could be you, your services, your food creating the rave on the net on the streets.

Look forward to hearing from you here at Fally's Food Hut. Contact email address is fallyvltd@gmail.com.

Talk with you soon..πŸ˜‰

dairy free milk alternative

I never cease to be amazed at what this author comes up with from our local food products!

Check this out as an example.. more to come.

 Would be using this forum to highlight the 'good things' some of our folks are doing out here regardless of what part of Africa or the Carribean they come from.

Recommendations are welcomed. πŸ˜€
Of course the proof of the pudding would be in the eating. What are your customers saying about you?πŸ˜•

presentation matters

What is it about the typical African or Caribbean party that gets you going?

 Is it the type of the food you get to eat & the nostalgia, for some, that accompanies the experience?
Is it the music? Family and friends attending?
Perhaps.... It is the awesome outfits which guests parade on the occasion?
Maybe the setting of the venue is something else.

Main thing is, as an organiser of such an event, you need to be the one to set 'the tempo' and you want to carry all your guests along.

With this in mind, you want to make sure you carry all your volunteers, suppliers or contractors along. That they fully understand what impression you want to leave with your guests and how or what they need to achieve this.

A good thing is a good thing, despite cultural and monetary challenges one might face in achieving the dream event, this essential communication between participating teams would go a long way.

The story has just begun.........how do you want to present yourself or your culture at your event or even in your business?

Have you got the big picture yet? What is it worth to you? What are those 'flies' you want to avoid getting into your business/ groove?

Talk with you later..😊
