Diane has cooked her Joloff rice at many of our settings, and it has always gone down well. Joloff rice is a West African rice dish, with various spices, vegetables and tomatoes. Diane explained that Joloff rice is one of those many dishes that each country claims as their own. Diane is Ghanian and her husband is Nigerian British. Many a heated debate at home revolves around which country does the best rice, which she explained is funny because her father thinks it is actually from Senegambia. Over time she explained many West African countries have adopted the dish. Diane learnt the dish from her mother who always put lots of scotch bonnet chillis in it. However she leaves them out as her children find this too spicy; instead adding in more ginger and garlic. She uses fresh cherry tomatoes, which give it extra flavour and sweetness She said her mother likes Diane’s rice, but is cheeky and refers to it as ‘English Rice’. She said her mother gets annoyed when her father says he likes Diane’s more than hers.
