An ode to conviviality, south of the Sahara - generosity and positivity through recipes, stories and culinary traditions.
In this vibrant and generous celebration of food, friendship and conviviality, photographer Aline Princet and Anto Cocagne, a young chef from Gabon, invite musicians, writers, artists and creatives from all over Africa, south of the Sahara, to share their recipes and bring the spotlight to focus on the rich diversity of African food. The 80 authentic recipes showcased here include the best dishes from Gabon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Congo and Ethiopia, and with each recipe comes information on its origins, its key ingredients and tips and advice for the home cook on how to cook them to perfection. They use fruit, grains, vegetables, spices and are delicious, healthy, often vegetarian or vegan and some gluten-free. Interwoven throughout are interviews with the artists who talk about what African food means to them. Saka Saka pays tribute to food-loving Africans and African culture and invites us all in to taste and savour.
