« I just found you in IG through African Cuisine and started following you. I'm foreign to african cuisine but each time I'm exposed to a video or tradition or experience I can't help but feel something inside of me is missing, like I'm really part of the "lost tribe" that will never know her true ancestoral roots and history. I hope that doesn't sound crazy. Your videos definitely touch me in a profound way. I just want to simply thank you for sharing your time, travel, and experiences with those of us who are gaining more than just enjoyable entertainment of cooking. Keep up the great work! »
« Hi! I’m sure you get a lot of messages but I just want to let you know that coming across your page today was the highlight of my day! I was living in Benin for a bit but had to come back to the States because of Covid. Amongst the numerous other things I miss about Benin, I definitely miss all the delicious food. I’ve tried searching recipes and going off what I remember to make riz au gras, sauce de tomate and pâte but my efforts don’t produce the greatest results haha. Anyway I’m so stoked to try all these recipes and just want to thank you for sharing with everyone! »
« Sis, this itinerary of your time in Benin brought tears to my eyes, honestly! I showed ALL of the clips to my husband and children who have yet to visit and they loved all of it. My husband who is a map nerd really enjoyed the stops you showcased. I guess I’m trying to say thank you for repping Benin so well... I have a complicated relationship with my country, lived there for 13 years and didn’t always have the best time... but your pictures are healing and for this I thank you »
« Just have to say thank you for your amazing work and repping Benin! I can’t find anyone else who makes achomo (and CALLS it achomo). My wife’s fam is from Savalou and her mom stays with us half the year. Your account is a great way for us to connect with each other and for her to connect with back home »
