"I waited for this book with high expectations and those expectations weren't dispelled when i received it. There are Ghanaian dishes aplenty to try out and each recipe is simple to follow. I had already cooked some of foods in the book before, such as jollof rice and the black eyed bean stew, but it was nice to see a different way this could be done and the different seasonings which could be used.
The book begins with an introduction to ghana and her people and then starts with various traditional soups such as palm nut and also peanut butter, it then goes on to stews such as spinach(kontomereh)and egusi and rice dishes like jollof. The book also includes a desert section with dishes you can make with plantain (kelewele) and also bofloat which is doughnuts. At the end there is a section which details all the Adinkra symbols and their meanings, just for your information.
Overall I found this a good book if you are just beginning to cook Ghanaian dishes and even if you are pretty good at it already. I would recommend it. My sister looked at the book and asked me to order her a copy!"

"This book is absolutely brilliant for Ghanaians who have never lived in Ghana or who no longer live at home and want all mum's recipes and more in one easy to follow guide!"

"I am married to a man who happens to be from Ghana. We live here in the U.S. It is very hard to cook at times because I usually end up cooking the same things over and over again. Although I can cook some dishes from Ghana, there was so much more that I knew of, but never knew the recipe for. I wanted to be able to cook more than just a couple of dishes from Ghana, so I searched for a book like this. I could have asked family members, but there is a great language barrier, which made that attempt useless. Now that I have this book, it has helped me to make my husband feel like he's "back home" in his mom's kitchen. Had I done it on my own, it would have took me years to get these authentic recipes, but thanks to Mr. Oto and his wife, I could probably teach my husband a thing or two!"

"I found this book very useful indeed as a reference or reminder for our wonderful food. You may be a beginner or polishing skills or simply wanting to broaden your home menu. The recipes are clear and easy to follow. They even tell you how to clean fish! Nothing is taken for granted."

"After a whole decade without the tastes from my childhood I just had to try this gem.
And there they were, the smells and tastes from my grandma's oven. Some of my favourites were missing, but then Ghana has so many different local dishes and I found so much more in this book that it was easily forgiven. I'm no cook and yet even I was able to recreate the most authentic delicious meals with the recipes from this book. Try it, you won't be disappointed."
