Cooks who might cook Thai food one night, Mexican the next, and Italian another are denying themselves many pleasures if they think West African food requires a radical restocking of their pantry.
In this engaging, approachable book, Senegal-born chef Pierre Thiam, who runs Teranga in NYC as well as restaurants in Senegal and Nigeria, makes it clear that it's easy to add West African food to your home repertoire. His informative headnotes teach you about everyday cooking, how meals are composed, and how special occasions are celebrated.

- Ginger chicken kedjenou, a braise with eggplant and tomato
