Owner of Casa Tomato restaurant Nazifatu Mohammed Abdulai, has shared what she believes is the secret to cooking good food.
Citing herself as an example, she mentioned that although she will not pride herself as the best cook, she can confidently call herself a good cook.
She believes that food really doesn’t follow any specific order and advised cooks to just play with ingredients.
“I like to play with ingredients. I like to try new recipes and most of the recipes I have, especially those in the restaurant are already existing recipes. I only try to add my own twist to them,” she said to Eunice Tornyi on e.tv Ghana’s African Women’s Voices show.
“For instance if you have fried rice, what makes your fried rice unique. Something must make your fried rice stand out especially if you’re cooking for the masses. Let them taste something different from what others are also giving out,”. “Once in a while just get different ingredients especially with the Ghanaian meals.Use a different method or different approach. You don’t have to necessarily start the usual way of making it and once in a while give a different twist. Go the charcoal way as that also gives it a unique taste,” she added.
