ABOUT

MyWeku Tastes is an online lifestyle magazine that covers food and travel culture as well as topical photo essays.
 .
Our (Team) edgy and mostly street style photography and specialism in bringing you the culinary traditions of various countries is what we are noted for. On our travels we bring you the mainstream travel must dos and sees, the hidden gems and the wonders that define a place but are often missed. Some of these places are so mysterious and eye-opening that we have a dedicated section for them called “Places“. If you want to know as much about a century and a half old Ottoman inspired pastry eatery such as Hafiz Mustafa 1864 in Istanbul, get a sense of what riding on Lisbon’s iconic tram 28 is like or get up to speed with what happens at Africa’s biggest art festival – the Chale Wote Art Festival – then you are in the right place.
 .
We also curate, arguably, the biggest collection of African food recipes online and run a store with the biggest collection of  African spices and herbs online. Our city guides are exhaustive and go beyond the obvious to touching on the style and fashion of folks  as well as the adornments – urban art – found in each city.
 .
“Weku” means family in Ga, a language spoken in the city of Accra. MyWeku (MyFamily) has been around as a blog for years, however, MyWeku Tastes was launched in 2015 and refocuses the original MyWeku blog from a general interest blog to a food and travel specialist.

As you can tell from our logo there is a strong African element to MyWeku Tastes. An integral part of MyWeku Taste’s existence is to bring to the fore a group that is increasingly becoming more visible – Africans and Africans in the diaspora who travel the world – and tell their stories from their perspectives and unique experiences. That world includes curating, documenting and telling the story of the African continent itself, from its food, culture and change makers, in a way that will shatter long held perceptions.
