"Cooking with Mai is an absolute treasure! I am American & my husband is Sierra Leonean; when he first arrived in the US, it was difficult for us to recreate his home foods because we couldn’t find many west African recipes written down. When I learned about Mai & her cookbook, I was thrilled & bought a copy for his birthday. It was the best gift I could have found, and we now cook from it constantly!"

“So easy to follow and has all my favorite Sierra Leonean recipes. Most African recipe books don't include a bunch of the recipes in here so you better add it to your collection :). I never learned the measurements for the dishes in here so I'm grateful that I can just give this to all my friends who love Sierra Leonean food(and cook for them less). It was also nice having background on all of the dishes and the pictures are beautiful!!!

"This is a beautiful recipe book. I cook west African food all the time, but I just love Mai’s take on it. I love how simple and easy to follow her recipes are, so even people with not very much experience with cooking west African food can easily follow.
"This is my all time favorite recipe book. The cooking steps were easy and simple to follow and the pictures were inviting. I will highly recommend Cooking with Mai if you want to I your cooking game on African cuisine or just want to sample some new dishes from West Africa. It’s also a great gift book if you are not into cooking."
