Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Zimbabwean peanut stew (Dovi)

    • lorloff on July 26, 2020

      This was a great stew. I had jalapeño chiles in this house so used those and they were very hot so I used about ½ the amount of fresh chile. I also doubled the carrots. It was a fantastic dish. Highly recommended will make again. The peri peri and the cayenne I thought would be too much but they were perfect.

  • Ethiopian chicken stew (Doro wot)

    • trmarvin on December 24, 2019

      I used peanut oil in place of the butter and canola, and chicken breasts. Came out wonderfully.
