For ingredients and equipment needed see below
Betty Vandy, owner of Bettylicious Cooks has been travelling across West Africa; Ghana, Liberia, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone for the past 8 months exploring Food, Farming and African people keeping the rich West African culinary legacy alive. A graduate in Hospitality Management and a plant based chef with an interest in West African plant based ingredients and cooking, Betty’s interest was driven by personal health issues, which she overcame through a change in her eating habits, as well as the lack of African food representation in mainstream media and culinary platforms.
Bettylicious Cooks provides street food stalls at festivals and carnivals, corporate and private events. Betty also runs cooking classes to empower people within diverse communities to learn to cook wholesome and nutritious African food. She has a witty yet serious podcast; Plantain and Politics, a reflection of her passion for plant based food and representation. Betty is also part of the team behind the UK Vegans of Colour event, the first of its kind which successfully launched in 2019.
