"The Groundnut Cookbook" is written by three friends of African heritage who explore their shared and individual histories in London. The book represents a retrospective of a period of time covering a series of dinners, with history and anecdotes intertwined with recipes of East and West African dishes, both inherited and created, served at sold-out pop-up events in London and internationally.


"The Groundnut collective has captured the essence of contemporary African cuisine in this beautiful and brilliant book.  Folayemi, Duval, and Jacob invite us into their kitchen to taste scrumptious dishes inspired by staples, flavor profiles, and classic dishes of East and West Africa reimagined in their home base of Western Europe.  Drawing on history and personal memories, their modern, healthful, and delicious dishes will feed your mind, body, and spirit."
