The influence of social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat etc, in Africa has whet the appetite of foodies and many others to develop an interest in local foods and ingredients. With the aid of this boom, I set out on a journey to rebrand the presentation of African foods and ingredients.
I’m Kinorah Awini, a Ghanaian-based African food connoisseur, content developer, and founder of Telande Limited. “Telande” means, “eat with me” in the Ghanaian Kusasi dialect from the Northern part of Ghana.
My passion for food has made an expert in the art of food blogging, food photography, and food styling. I find myself in a joyous state when engaged in the beautiful process of cooking from its raw state to its plating.
I believe Africans have a lot to offer in terms of food recipes. It has hence been my mission to use these ingredients to create exciting new recipes while adding stupendous touches to existing ones. Recipes from Telande are made with brevity in mind and are highly experimental for easy practice at home by patrons.
I believe there’s a huge potential for African cuisines and ingredients that will appeal to food audiences all over the world should it be promoted effectively and presented in the right light across borders to those who know nothing about it.
