Attention All African Food Lovers...Introducing nududu Delights

I'd like to bring your attention to a nifty new website dedicated to African foods and restaurants. It's called nududu Delights, and you can check it out here:

Nududu Delights currently has over 250 recipes and 250 restaurant listings. The recipes come from all over Africa. The restaurant listings provide telephone numbers, addresses, opening hours, and in some cases, menus and average prices of foods.
The great thing about this particular listing is that besides the higher end African restaurants you'd usually find on the internet, it also has joints/local food sellers...Even table-top sellers can be included as long as the seller is reachable by phone and the food is quality.
And if you register, you can upload your favorite recipes and help grow the database of recipes. Or you can send in the telephone number for the waakye joint in your area to the database so others can find and enjoy your local , alternative food joints. You can also comment on currently listed recipes and restaurants.

I've already started using it. I found a jollof recipe from Liberia that I liked better than the Ghanaian recipe i've been using for all these years because unlike my Ghana jollof, which tends to burn the bottom of the pot, the Liberian recipe I found on was hassle-free and still delicious!

I could go on and on, but you should just check it out for yourself. Visit

Nududu is a member of the fie.nipa cooperative. To learn more about the fie.nipa cooperative, visit


  1. Esi,

    Thank you for posting this African food and recipe link! I had a quick look and it's great I will right now find a Ghanaian dish to cook for later this week. I lived in Ghana twice, for a total of 7.5 years (had a baby there, too) and have a very soft spot for the country and the people. I'm a writer and have light-hearted stories about my expat experiences in Ghana on my blog I will put a link to the nududu site on it.

    Good luck with your book! I hope it's an upbeat and happy story. We need more of those!

  2. Looks great! As a foreigner living in Ghana for 12 years I know all the food - but being able to make it at home is another thing... I shall start experimenting! Thanks for the link.

  3. I like this blog post very much.
    African food is the best!
