Andrew Talks to Chefs

Episode 180: Zoe Adjonyoh (author, Zoe's Ghana Kitchen)

Episode Summary

Chef and author Zoe Adjonyoh discusses the first American edition of her beloved book Zoe's Ghana Kitchen.

Episode Notes

Zoe Adjonyoh's fascination with Ghanaian cuisine began as an exploration of personal identity (she grew up in the U.K., the child of a Ghanaian father and Irish mother), expanded to a focus of culinary travel, and flowered into a series of London-based businesses--pop-ups, supper clubs, a restaurant, and a book, Zoe's Ghana Kitchen. On this, the publication day of the first US edition of her book, Zoe joins Andrew to discuss her passion for her work, how it fits into the relatively recent effort to codify Ghanaian cuisine, and how she mingles the universal and the personal in her outlook and recipes.
