The Afropolitan Way!

Yetunde currently needs your support to publish The Afropolitan Chef’s cookbook which is all about – “Traditional African ways of cooking and eating and their meanings, plate presentations and decorations, rich but health conscious foods”, she says:

Hello, to every foodie out there who regularly pushes the boundaries of their food comfort zone. My name is Yetunde Taiwo and I love life and have a deep and passionate love affair with food, especially African food. So I’m creating the Afropolitan Chef Cookbook to share the techniques, flavors and spices of the world inspired by Africa. The concept is to share with you the eating habits of the modern day Cosmopolitan African. I have been cooking since I was 6 years old and my mother is my greatest influence in the kitchen. Afropolitan Chef dishes are tasty, save time and are visually enticing. I am calling your attention today because I need your support in making this delicious dream come true.  To teach you how to cook easily and quickly, African inspired meals. African Fusion. A cosmopolitan African perspective.

Afropolitan Chef Cookbook- African Inspired Meals About the Book The Afropolitan Chef cookbook will have over 60 savory recipes in time for Thanksgiving 2014. The recipes are a fusion of meals I have learned over the years, influenced by West Africa, and includes something not usually shared in African fusion meals: A Calorie Count. Yes, delicious, exotic and still healthy! I have also done my best to include ingredients that you can get at any local grocery store. I have already written most of the recipes and shot the photos to go in the cookbook. In order to have foodies flipping through the pictures, salivating and yearning to satisfy their pallets in time for Thanksgiving; I need to raise $7,500 before summer’s end – Yetunde Taiwo, Afropolitan Chef

Here’s Breakfast.. What’s for Lunch?

Good Morning…  What did you have for breakfast? 🙂

Breakfast is a meal that “breaks” the “fast” of a period of time (night time) where the body receives no food for fuel. As the period without food is usually during sleep. Therefore, the time when we generally “break” the “fast” is in the morning when we wake. Breakfast helps to jumpstart metabolism. Metabolism is the engine in your body that controls how your body uses energy through the day. It is especially important for the brain to have energy for thinking and learning.

Here’s what people around the world have for breakfast, well according to  BuzzFeedYellow



Eating breakfast has been significantly associated with better concentration and focus, as well as improved weight. ‘Feed your eyes’ with these photos of a popular African breakfast – Yam and Eggs. Pictures courtesy the Afropolitan Chef
