We will be cooking a 3 course meal for Father’s day. So you’ll get a great idea for how to celebrate dad by treating him to a delicious meal of the day. Follow @afropolitanchef. And shout out to Evelyn of Ankara Miami for making this happen.


Let’s get this foodie demo started.

Ankara Miami Brunch event

Hey love foodies so the food demonstration with Ankara Miami was awesome. We made akara and moi moi. (All with beans for my non African friends) And it all took less than 50 minutes to make. Yuppp. (considering typically the beans cleaning usually takes hours) From cleaning the beans to eating it. Ankara Miami this was a lovely event. And the cookies went pretty fast lol. And @essieizspicy it was awesome seeing your goodies in the baggies. We need to catch up soon.

How to tell if you are a FOODIE!

Happy Friday Foodies. So in an effort to identify other foodies that DO NOT KNOW THEY Are foodies yet, here are tips to help you identify as a foodie. If you answer YES to any of these questions, then YOU ARE A FOODIE, and I welcome you to Afropolitan Chef officially 🙂 LOL! Happy Friday

You smell food even when there is no restaurant in sight
You sniff like a dog when you smell anything food-like
You already know what you are having for lunch tomorrow
You are genuinely happy when you eat good food
You close your eyes when that first sensational taste hits your tongue
You make dinner reservations before you make hotel reservations
You talk about food at least 3 times a day
A perfect day includes watching the cooking channel or food network
You cook even in other people’s homes
You’ve ever taken any cooking class
Thinking of a juicy steak makes you drool
if you know what De-glazing means
You have more than one pot in your cabinet
You grow your own tomatoes and herbs

Crab Cakes

I took my first go at crab-cakes. I loved the process of the mess. So fun. I have officially added crab cakes to my home dinner parties menu. It’s quick, easy and depending on the size it can be quite filling.
