The Ghana Cookbook pre-order prices: Amazon vs. Barnes and Noble

Friends: I just noticed that while Amazon.com in the U.S. offers a descriptive blurb about The Ghana Cookbook and pre-order prices of $16.57 (a 17% discount),  Barnes and Noble online is offering pre-orders of The Ghana Cookbook for $14.95 (a 25% discount). 

If you plan to buy a copy, please be advised that this first issue (due out in early October) will be a small print run. If you want to be sure to get a copy, consider getting your order in sooner rather than later. (This could make a great hostess, Christmas, or Kwanzaa gift for someone special on your list.)


Coming soon: a recipe that will not be in the cookbook: benisi from northern Ghana. It uses shea butter and young black-eyed pea leaves. Does anyone know where I might find some of these leaves, fresh and tender, in central Pennsylvania? Otherwise, I will substitute baby spinach leaves.

I pre-ordered nearly a month ago. The Canadian Amazon doesn't have this book so I had to order from the American one - either way I'm pretty excited :)

Thank you, Krys, and the 7 dozen or so folks who've already pre-ordered.

Hello "Mukase chic." So glad to see your Facebook page! I'm afraid I left Ghana in May, but will be back after The Ghana Cookbook comes out in October (I'll probably be there December or January). Please email me at fran@betumi.com. I'd love to connect with you.

Hi Fran,

I'm working on an article about the modern history of jollof rice and would like to get in touch so I sent you an email. Please treat as urgent. Eromo

Sorry I didn't get your email in time, "Severus." I was away on vacation. Hope the article was out before World Jollof Day.
