The Melting Pot
By Maggie Ogunbanwo

Showcasing the diversity and variety, both cultural and culinary, that truly defines the Welsh BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) community
This collection of thirty recipes celebrates food as a language through which those settling in unfamiliar communities have been able to reach out, communicate and share, emphasizing the key role food plays for families over generations. Here we delve not only into how to recreate these wonderful flavors but also the rich tapestry of stories behind them and the significance they take on as they are passed down and enjoyed again and again.
Traditions and inspirations from around the world are represented across a range of starters, main meals, desserts, and drinks, from Nigerian-inspired jollof rice to the Caribbean’s quintessential saltfish fritters, as well as recipes from Syria, Bangladesh, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Bali, and more. A veritable melting pot! The vibrancy and character of each dish has been sensationally captured by food photography specialist Huw Jones.
