This is the first cookbook with recipes for authentic Tanzania cuisine. As is known to all, spices are what distinguishes one recipe from another. Tanzania is abundantly endowed with numerous spices, most of which are available in their fresh state. Names of the spices in the book are given in both English and Swahili for those who want the freshest from sokoni (the local vegetable market) and for those who are near good vegetable markets elsewhere.
This book will introduce you to locally available ingredients rich with local flavours. With the recipes provided by this book, you can prepare meals for a single person, several family members even a large gathering where good food is a prime component. They are also a great reminder of mama's cooking prepared with love. If you are away from her, you no longer need to stress about what to prepare-just turn to any page of the cookbook and start cooking.
