  1. I appreciate learning from you tonight I made this dish your way and it was so good flavorful I’ve never tried egusi and fufu before I truly enjoyed I was a little skeptical at First! The Lady from the African store told me I’ll be just fine and “yes it was soooooo tasty
    Watching you it walked me right through it. I did add a little seasoning to the fufu I’ll be making this again

  2. I’ve been wanting to try this stew/soup, since I was a child, I saw a film where the people were enjoying this dish. But I was told that I would have to travel to Africa to do so. Thank goodness for you, I’m looking forward to making it myself and enjoying it at will. 💖
