    I just watched your cooking programme and the guest that appeared made a statement that Jollof was originally from Ghana which is very true, but to add that now South African’s cooks it better than the Ghanaians that is a very very big lie. The dish still remains very well cooked with the Ghanaian community.

    • amanda says:

      nope jollof rice is from nigeria too u know….its an everyday dish there.

    • Jarlath says:

      I wish you would provide subtitles. It is hard to keep with the dialogue. The programme is very enjoyable otherwise

  2. Jenny says:

    Of course no other African country cooks jollof rice better than Naija.

  3. Margaret says:

    Hi, Just being reading some of the comments about jollof rice. Its amazing how we africans dont know much of our history. Jollof rice was originally from the Jollof tribe in Senegal also called Wolof hence the name. I am also a Ghanaian and I must admit the ghanaian jollof rice is far mor delicious than the nigerian jollof. It in incomparable to the nigerian jollof actually.

    I watch many cooking programs. Cooking with Siba is refreshing and entertaining. It’s good to see Africa bringing its flavours to the world.
    Siba should be doing some books. I’d buy it – Kindle or hardback.

    What a great cooking show with a lovely presenter. I miss the people of South Africa so much having lived there for 2 years. I also miss the delicious food. It just tastes so much more of flavour and an african twist on any dish just makes it so much better.

    Just to clarify the origins of Jollof Rice as I also heard Kendra’s comments. Jollof Rice originated from the Wollof tribe in Senegal & The Gambia. Jollof being one of the states of the Wollof Empire. It’s also called Benechin. There are many variations of Jollof rice since it’s popularity and spread throughout West Africa.
