AccraPremium proudly hosted the latest Gourmet Cooking Club event at the Embassy of Japan here in Accra. The Gourmet Club is generously sponsored by Koala Shopping Centre and French dairy company Elle et Vire.
Mrs Koko Nikai, spouse of the Ambassador of Japan to Ghana, Mr Naoto Nikai, was our gracious hostess. Embassy Chef Watanabe prepared 4 dishes ranging from Matcha Ice Cream to Bean Cake and Japanese Plantains. The most enjoyable part of the event came when the Gourmet Club members had the opportunity to roll their own sushi. All of the ingredients shown in the video can be found at Koala Shopping Centres.
The excitement surrounding the Gourmet Club is very encouraging. In the coming months, AccraPremium has many more fantastic events in store!

It's Christmas time and the Koala Shopping Centres are rewarding their loyal customers with 10% off ALL PURCHASES this weekend!!
Pepper is as essential an ingredient in Ghanaian food as tomatoes in Italian food. Here, many people enjoy pepper either as a sauce accompaniment or as a main seasoning in every meal of the day.
To find a robust, flavorful and delicious pepper sauce that has been prepared under international hygienic standards is an extra special treat. The makers of Moco Foods have managed to bring a fantastic new specialty food product to the Ghanaian market. Enjoying their product leaves you with an exciting dilemma. It blows your socks off yet you are simultaneously looking for water to cool off and yearning for more pepper sauce for your next bite!
What makes the dining experience even more satisfying is the back story on Moco's founders and their solid corporate commitment to environmental sustainability, community upliftment and providing employment opportunities to the disabled. When a young professional who has received a top notch international education chooses to come home and to use his valuable expertise and experience for the development of his country, such a choice must be celebrated and respected.
You can learn more about Moco here and if you are as lucky as I was, you will get your hands on a jar as soon as possible. Be sure to let us know what you think.

On one day of each week, I awaken especially early and take a leisurely drive to Doboro (near Nsawam), to visit the Blue Skies Facility and to buy my week's supply of super fresh, super nutritious and super delicious fruit juices.

Also, I have had the privilege to tour the full Blue Skies plant and to see their operations up close. I learned more about their corporate culture. The level of professionalism, good hygiene and sense of camaraderie and mutual respect between all levels of co-workers was truly impressive. It makes enjoying their products and supporting their company even more fun.
You don't have to drive to Doboro to find Blue Skies products. Most good quality stores and the finer restaurants have them in stock. If you haven't tried Blue Skies yet, do so soon. You will be glad you did.
