Saka Saka: South of the Sahara – Adventures in African Cooking by Anto Cocagne

Chef Anto Cocagne and Photographer Aline Princet take us on a unique food journey and introduce us to the best recipes from Gabon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Congo, and Ethiopia.

We will discover the main characteristics of these cuisines, the specialties of each region, the produce, the ideal pantry, the basics, as well as mouthwatering recipes for appetizers, main courses, side dishes, street food, desserts, and drinks.

And since no one evokes a cuisine better than its daughters and sons, we meet African musicians, writers, artists, and creatives who tell stories about their favourite dishes, their family cooking memories, and what these recipes represent for them today.

With stunning food and landscape photography, complemented by beautiful and colourful design, this book is an ode to conviviality, generosity, and positivity. It is a love letter to Africa. (more…)
