  • From Rice-water to Caramelised rice pudding!

      Rice-water may sound humble but believe me, when it ends up as a delicious rice pudding you will want second and third helpings! In Ghana rice-water is a breakfast porridge. It is simply rice with water, simmered until the rice disintegrates and served with sugar and evaporated milk. My mum made rice water as a Sunday evening supper, after a rather large Sunday lunch, often chicken peanut butter soup… I have to say, the rice-water didn’t really excite me, as I missed her ...

Try to imagine ripe plantain, cored and stuffed with mincemeat in a crumbly pastry boat. I love serving them warm like little islands floating in a sea of custard. Plantain is readily available in ...
  • Plantain chocolate truffles

    Hands up who doesn’t like chocolate. Yep, thought so, not a hand to be seen. Let’s try a different one – who doesn’t like truffles? Yep, same answer… and same as me.     When it comes to truffles, I simply can’t resist (and in my world there is no such thing as just one truffle). My all-time favourite indulgence has to be plantain chocolate truffles.             What’s in a plantain chocolate truffle? ...
