There is no bigger cheerleader for West African cuisine than chef Pierre Thiam, who is now about to release his fourth book on the topic. Entitled ‘Simply West African: Easy, Joyful Recipes for Every Kitchen,’ a main focus of the book is to demystify the cuisine and make it readily accessible for cooks across the world. It’s a collection of 80 recipes that shine a spotlight on West African ingredients like yams, okra, beans, leafy greens, lean meats, legumes, and more. Foodies can bring elevated-traditional dishes to their weeknight dinner tables like Chicken Yassa Tacos, Blackened Salmon with Moyo Sauce, and Root Vegetable Mafe. Feed a crowd with Akara Chickpea Fritters or roll up to the tailgate with Ndambe Nachos featuring black-eyed peas and butternut squash.
