Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
This edition of the eCookBook was produced in Nairobi and focusses on one of the most energy intensive popular food groups: beans and cereals. The ceramic jiko full of red hot charcoal simmering away beside the kitchen door, with a pot of beans ontop is a familiar sight across Nairobi. Even in 2019, many households with a kerosene, gas or electric stove still cook ‘heavy foods’ like beans on charcoal because most people believe it’s cheaper – as you will see in this eCookBook, it is not!
