    Much respect for the northern Nigeria dishes like pate accha and Miyan bussashen kubewa. Our dishes are under appreciated and our cuisine not promoted. Thank you very much. I shall be taking a stroll through your recipes and set myself at least one challenge a week.

    Very heart warming to see someone doing northern food so accurately.. You must have lived in kaduna or Kano for a while

      Thanks Nabz, Born and breed in KD.

        The Northern dishes featured are all so tasty. “Fonio Pottage” is from Plateau State in the Middle Belt and it was such a pleasant surprise to see it here! Such a healthy and filling dish. The “acha” can be used to make a pudding and also “tuwo” which goes spectacularly with “Miyan Kuka”. Thank you and keep the recipes coming!

        • Terry Adido says:

          You are welcome Kankemwa. I’m part Berom from Plateau state so expect to see a lot more dishes from Northern Nigeria on this page. Thanks for your insightful and information filled message.

          • Kankemwa says:

            Looking forward to seeing more “home” recipes from the Plateau in particular. Really great website you have here with lots to learn! Thank you. “Mafeng” (I hope I got that right).

          • Terry Adido says:

            Thanks Kankemwa. I plan to share a lot more. And yes, it is Mafeng.

    Hello Terry, I watched you on Master Chef Canada and you did an outstanding job. Keep doing the good job and I would like to mention to you that if in the in future you find your self in such competition, please don’t trust your co-competitors with your all heart because they are your greatest enemy.

    I am not advising you but just my thoughts, for some reasons I feel Dr. Shawn wanted you out. No matter how your friendship grew in the house, he probably would want his greatest competitor out of the game and that was his opportunity to let you out.

    I feel so bad he could have corrected the mistake but he neglected it. Its all good and gone, I am not blaming him Dr. Shawn just sharing my thought. Nigerians and I are all proud of your great work.

    I wish you all the best.

    • Terry Adido says:

      Hi Kemi, I don’t think your assessment of Dr. Shawn is fair. He is an amazing home cook. He honestly did not notice the mistake. And yes, it was a competition and Dr. Shawn was also a co-competitor and its ok for him to want me out just the same way I would have wanted him out eventually. Thanks for your comment though.

      • Kemi says:

        Hello Terry, I meant no harm with my comment and neither did I mean to put down Dr. Shawn. I respect his work and your work. Besides, I can’t even beat you guys in the kitchen if I have to compete with you.

        My comment is based on my “no harm” opinion as your fan and I am sure there are other fans out there that would love to see you win.

        Your hard work was noticed and appreciated and in my opinion I felt you should win. All I was trying to pass across in my first comment is that “your elimination seem more political”.

        I do Apologize if my comment was passed as defamation against Dr. Shawn.

        Happy Fan.

        • Terry Adido says:

          I was not at all offended by your comment. I was only trying to give my own point of view. And yes, my elimination was obviously “political”, just not the way you see it. I appreciate your comment.
