The Orishirishi Cookbook by Tola Akerele is your comprehensive guide to Nigerian cuisine, infusing the quirks and tips required to prepare some of the finest delicacies out of Africa. Not only does it take you on a journey of discovery, but it also opens you up to the Nigerian culture vastly expressed through food. For this reason, it is especially relevant to people in the diaspora who are either looking to connect with their roots or are simply fascinated by Nigerian meals.
This cookbook provides insight into Nigerian food and its abundant history for people all over the world.

Here, I share important stories about our culture, not just with words, but with images to guide you through each process from sourcing ingredients to serving the finished meal.
Written and designed with an aim to celebrate our rich diversity, the stunning array of imagery will inspire you to finally try out that recipe you’ve always wanted. This is not another cookbook that gathers dust on your bookshelf. It is a compelling insight on what it means to eat Nigerian, accessible to everyone both in Nigeria and the diaspora.
