Here, our writers and cooks from across the continent share what they love about all things African and epicure. The farmers and communities who support GMO-Free Zones and other traditional and long-term practices to protect our local food systems and support community-based organic agriculture are also celebrated here.

Long stretches of arid land and savannah have created plants and animals that are stunningly unique and varied. Here are just a few that we enjoy:
We come from a long tradition of making things at home, and we love to learn new and better ways to use the bounty we have locally!
Farmers, Gardeners, and Producers
This is where we profile urban growers, organic farmers, artisanal producers and community food justice advocates of all colors, stripes and sizes working to make Africa’s food as accessible, diverse and resilient as possible.

Stories and Traditions
We celebrate festivals and religious holidays every year with our family, friends and communities, creating new stories and carrying on with the old traditions as well. Wedding parties, religious occasions like ‘Eid and Christmas, and of course, traditional family specialties that your auntie and your grandmother make so well are all here.
