The name Awujoh in Nigeria means festive gathering. In Sierra Leone where I am from Awujoh is a festive celebration that is usually comprised of most if not all of our delicacies. Like Palava sauce an Awujoh is a delicious eclectic blend of a large variety of foods in celebration of any one of the life's three stages-birth, living and death.
My wife's Hands-The cookbook opens the door to the methods and skills used in the preparation of some of these dishes with detailed information from a learned restauranteur/husband/father/businessman- Shika Ademu-John. Before the Cookbook was Awujoh the restaurant. As we await a possible re-opening we present you with recipes and facts that may guide you to new dishes that encourage and promote healthier lifestyles.
