West Africa's earliest recipe book, "Cooking in West Africa" was originally published in 1920, and written for the benefit of young bachelor district officers in Nigeria during the British colonial period. Over 200 recipes use local ingredients such as sweet mangoes, beef from zebu oxen, green paw-paw and fresh ground-nuts, together with imported staples such as tinned sausages and condensed milk. Hints on stocking a cook's box and cooking for colleagues struck down with fever are interspersed with delightful vintage advertisements. This book is a piece of West African colonial history - to read, savour and enjoy.
