Ivorian Cusine — Fofky’s Kitchen

A copy of Fofky’s Kitchen should be in everybody’s kitchen, not because the word “kitchen” is there, but because it contains recipes with healthy and simple ingredients most of us have in our cupboards and refrigerators.

A mother of two, I often come home from work, exhausted. Yet, I have children to feed and that requires mustering up whatever energy I have left to step into the kitchen. This is where Fofky’s Kitchen steps in!

The recipes are clearly-structured, well-organized in the book and easy-to-follow. I learned that Ivorian cuisine is a splash of culture blended with special dishes for any time of day. Whether you are craving a special kind of tea or a delightful real dessert, this cookbook has a variety to choose from and for the most part, you won’t have to leave your house again to grab too many extra ingredients for main dishes!

The simplicity of each recipe puts ease to one’s mind. That peace of mind is what results into my dubbing Ivorian Cuisine, “comfort” food.

When I asked the author, Papatia Feauxzar, what inspired her to write these healthy and gluten-free recipes, she said that she is a foodie who is allergic to a lot of foods; therefore while she is adventurous with eating other cuisines, she stays true to her native’s roots her body is used to. Bioindividuality explains this, she said.

Papatia’s Fofky’s Kitchen is not only food for comfort, but cuisine filled with empathy and a cookbook which welcomes anyone and everyone with open arms.
