Margaret Nyamumbo went from drinking coffee in college to stay awake to wondering why she wasn’t seeing her country’s roasts in the US. Now, her coffee brand Kahawa1893 is blazing a trail for other African food businesses looking to go global.

Los Angeles isn’t just about movie stars and fashion models. It’s also home to a rich legacy of Black food culture that foodies of all backgrounds should explore.

Bahamian Pumpkin, Corn & Rice

Flavourful rice dishes are prevalent throughout the Islands of the Bahamas, it’s our celebrated African heritage. In the family islands, the ingredients added to the rice are farm to table, what we eat is usually what is grown. Pumpkin & Rice is what I call a Bahamian old school recipe that is only homemade and not usually found in restaurants. In this recipe, I’m adding freshly shucked corn kernels as corn & rice is another favourite rice dish.

Grilled Brown Sugar Peaches

Peaches are the official fruit of summer, but to get the most out of them, add some magic by grilling them and spreading them with cinnamon-brown sugar butter.

Andros Crab & Rice

This is the most quintessential Bahamian dish, a rice so flavourful, “you’ll want to eat the spoon!” Andros is the largest island in the Bahamas (2,300 square miles), known as “The Land of Crabs.” It’s home of the annual crab festival and the birthplace of my grandmother, she made it best with the addition of coconut oil, earthy pigeon peas and salted beef.
