Hello and welcome to my blog – A Plate in the Sun.
It’s named after my first cook book simply because when I imagine a plate in the sun I think of enjoying fresh and delicious dishes in the sunshine, fun and relaxing times, summer, friends and all things good.
I’m from glorious, sun-soaked Ghana in West Africa and grew up in Takoradi, in earshot of Atlantic waves crashing against the tropical shores. Add to that picture: palm trees, sand, coconuts, grouper fish, sugarloaf pineapples, the list could go on….
Much of my cooking has its roots in my mum’s recipes and her style of cooking – an inspiration to anyone who spent time with her in her kitchen.
I read somewhere that “When cultures collide a hybrid is born”. Nowhere is this more true than with food and I love the vibrant tastes of African fusion.
In my posts I look forward to sharing my love of food with you.
My name is Patti, welcome to my blog.
