Fusion safari

Hi, I live in one of the best countries in the world-Australia. I was fortunate enough to get a great education and I became a chef. I'm also fortunate enough to have been able to speak my mind and not suppressed. I have many friends from many countries and many faiths. We live in a crazy world at the moment, and as my parents have said-it's like taking two steps forward and ten steps back. I feel like humankind has to start from the beginning again, from the basics. Food is a basic, so I'm starting here. Food is also supposed to bring people together, so I'm also starting from here. I have designed a new sort of cookbook-a fusion of African flavorswith other eastern and also western dishes. I wish to see people realizing spices from different countries mix well together, and so do people from different countries. My aim with this cookbook is not all about fame, but for my recipes to be in every kitchen around the world. My wish is for my recipes to bring joy to people whilst being cooked and eaten. Humankind needs a lot of help right now, and my plan is for my book to bring people together. Lucky Dube spread the message through music, I'm spreading through food.

Hi Megs, Welcome to World Pulse:-) What a great idea to have food bring people together in harmony and community. How else do you think your cookbook could bring women and children more prosperity, community and harmony? Thanks for your post.

Dear Megs21,

I love the way you are approaching getting back to the basics and focusing on how food brings people together! This is such a refreshing outlook. How can we find your cookbook/ when will it be available? Do you have any tips for people who would also like to bring people together by sharing food? Thanks for sharing!

Warm regards,

Lisa

My publisher is still on holidays for another week. When he gets back, he will publish online for me and give me the link to give to people. Am hoping by end of this month. Ever since I was a child, I've always been fascinated with Africa and her people, so it was relatively easy for me to design. My advice to other women-design dishes with an influence of their countries. I've found when I have customers coming in to cafe where I work that they not sure what to have for lunch-which means I'll suggest things, but in a way where I'm making up their minds for them. So make people change their way of thinking by telling them to eat-I believe it's a simple way
