Piri Piri sauce

Piri Piri Sauce

Piri-piri or peri-peri is Swahili for ‘pepper-pepper’ otherwise known as the African birds-eye chilies. It is a hot chili that comes originally from Mozambique, where it was adopted by Portuguese settlers.


Abobie (anchovy pepper sauce)

Abobie or Abobi (anchovy pepper sauce) is a delicious fresh pepper sauce mainly found in the Volta region of Ghana. The main ingredients are pepper (habeneros, green peppers or kpakpo shito), onions, ginger, salt to taste and the all-important anchovies. In Ghana anchovies are affectionately called “Keta School boys”. Keta is a reference to the small town Keta in Ghana mentioned in Maya Angelou‘s All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes.



Ketchup, brown sauce, mayonnaise and Schrirasa can all be found in my pantry, but shito occupies a special place. A whole cupboard, perhaps a year’s supply is dedicated to shito. I eat it more often and have a collection some of which were directly bought from it’s historic home – Ghana.

Kpakpo Shito

Kpakpo Shito

The popular Ghanaian dish, Kenkey with fried fish and shrimps is not complete until freshly made aromatic, wholesome and that mellow sweet taste of kpakpo shito is made to accompany it.
