Great concept and content

I discovered this podcast in one of Facebook groups and I am happy I did. I love the idea of learning about African foods and getting insight from people in the African food industry. The host asks clear questions and makes sure to give as much information about the foods talked about on the show as needed to understand the content.

Love Podcast- Over and over

This podcast is such a personal discovery as I celebrate “my” healthier indigenous food. Thank you sooo much for educating me about this cuisine Yorm. Just finished listening to Eden of Edenthefoodie.

I want to learn more from the African continent since I’m of the African Diaspora (New World) for 200+ years and know little about this cuisine and want to claim it and you and your interviews help me connect in order to cook these or seek restaurants. This is so appreciated.

Keep up the good work.

Exactly what we need

Informative, fun and exactly what we need in the diaspora. The conversation on Africa’s contribution to global cuisine has been muted until now. Item 13 fills that white space on educating the global community on African food, introducing budding and established African/African inspired food entrepreneurs and creating a robust community of African food enthusiasts. Great job!
