Recipes[edit]

Africa is a continent of more than 50 countries, at different levels of development, using a wide variety of cooking styles and ingredients.[citation needed] The recipes offered on AfroFoodtv.com represent some of the well-known, classic dishes from the various regions of the continent.[citation needed] And as the Web site has evolved, some of the recipes now incorporate African flavors into traditional Western dishes such as pizza and hamburgers.

The recipe section is broken down into the following areas: staples, soups, stews, chicken, fish, meat, snacks and sides.

Videos[edit]

AfroFoodtv.com has a video library with over 40 demonstrations of recipes. These videos are hosted by Ezeanii.[citation needed]

Creator[edit]

Ezeanii has written and been featured in several articles on African cuisine in such publications as Nigeria World (online newspaper),[2] [3] Munaluchi (African bridal magazine), and The Sunday Paper[4] [5] Ezeanii is also the host of the "Taste of Africa" by Afrofoodtv food show twice weekly on Afrotainment Television which is on the dish network channel 751.
