Curious about what the neighbours have in their kitchen? We are. That’s why we are taking a look into the kitchens of food lovers we know.
Every other month, one of them will share 5 of their favourite ingredients and tell us why they love them so. This month we feature Sophie Musoki.
Sophia Musoki is a Ugandan food blogger, writer and photographer whose work through A Kitchen in Uganda, has been instrumental in bringing Ugandan cuisine to the world. She is a strong advocate for eating local, exploring Ugandan food and way of cooking and using indigenous produce to make scrumptious meals.
I mostly enjoy cooking savory food and I always make sure I have enough garlic with me because when it is cooked right, it it has a beautiful flavor.
2. FRESH GINGER
Underrated but its really great for cooking. Aside from making tea and ginger sweets, I use it in almost all my stews. The combination of grated/crushed ginger and garlic always adds magic to a stew.
3. SHARP KNIFE
I really really like my knives sharp. There is nothing more irritating than a blunt knife.
4. BLACK PEPPER
I swear by black pepper because just an addition of it in stews heightens the flavor. Always!
5. CHOPPING BOARD
A sturdy chopping board is something I always make sure I have around me when cooking. Not only does it ease the job of cutting things but also acts as a prop for my photography
