This is the first and original cookbook with recipes for preparing authentic Tanzania cuisine. As in every cooking, spices are what distinguishes one recipe from another and Tanzania is abundantly endowed with numerous spices, most of which are available in their fresh state. The names of the spices in the book are given in English and Kiswahili 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 for preparing meals that the single person, family or gathering will enjoy on different occasions for celebration, and where good food is a prime component. They are a great reminder of mama’s cooking prepared with love; and if you are away from her you no longer need to stress about what to prepare, just open any random page and start cooking.
