Why the Canadian African not the Canadian Ghanaian

So yesterday on instagram, I commented on the fact that it is still 2018 and people refer to Africa as a monolith, from our food, to our culture, to our language and many more. This is especially a problem when "western" countries are referred to as their own country and not an entire continent. It... Continue Reading →

If you guys follow me on instagram, which you should (thecanadianafrican) you will know that I am OBSESSED with this restaurant. A bit of a back story.

I absolutely love cinnamon raisin, especially the sweetness of the raisins when warm and the fragrance of cinnamon. This recipe... Continue Reading →

Curried Lentils Shepherds Pie

I remember the first time I tried Shepherd's Pie was on a British Airways  flight to Tanzania. I remember it tasting like plane food, and it did not really stand out to me.
