ABOUT

Ghana cocoyam fufu is my second favorite fufu variety. The first time I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised by its thick and heavy texture. My once soft supple fufu had turned a bit hard in about 15mins. Immediately recalled my mum telling me to hurry with my dinner. Now I understood why.

Paired with soup, it makes the perfect Sunday lunch. I recommended you switch up your fufu game this Sunday and try some tasty cocoyam fufu. And please don’t forget to send your reviews.
