Dynamic Nigerian Recipes
About the Book
This book goes a little beyond being just another recipe book. It is a recipe book with a unique twist that delves into the fun and fellowship aspects of food preparation in the kitchen. Unlike most conventional recipe books, Kitchen Physics: Dynamic Nigerian Recipes takes readers through an intellectual path of cooking popular Nigerian foods. Food and recipes bring people together. Immigrants residing anywhere in the world connect with their original homelands through their continuing connection with their respective ethnic foods. No matter how long an immigrant has lived outside his or her home country, the excitement of relevant ethnic foods still persists. Even second, third, and fourth generation immigrants still connect with their parents’ original home countries through the appropriate ethnic foods. This fact is very much applicable to Nigerian immigrants anywhere in the world. The purpose of this book is to provide an avenue of connectivity to the ethnic origins of readers. He or she who is connected to the food is connected to the ethnic affiliation of the food. Not forgetting home means connecting with foods from home. Food and fellowship go hand in hand in the African culture. There are facts and fallacies of food all around the world, but it is often fellowship that gels everything together.
