Sierra Leonean Produce

In Sierra Leone, food is organically produced on a small scale, in a household-based subsistence economy.

For example, my mother grows her own fruits and vegetables. She has a small garden with a horticulture area in her compound where she cultivates a large variety of delicious fruits and vegetables such as bananas, potato leaves, crane, and cassava.

Agriculture employs about two-thirds of the population and is responsible for almost half of Sierra Leone’s GDP. Rice, cassava and vegetables are the main staple crops.

Agricultural development and food security are the critical foundations for economic growth in Sierra Leone.

I am always seeking to make new connections with Sierra Leonean producers both large and small.

I cook traditional and modern African dishes and Afro-fusion cuisine. Wherever possible will use locally-sourced produce.

I am also keen to become an ambassador for Sierra Leonean producers.
