BN TV: Watch Bukie’s Kitchen Muse make Nigeria’s popular Ayamase Stew (Designer Stew)



Today on Bukie’s Kitchen Muse, Bukie will be making one of the most popular stews in Western Nigeria called the Ayamase Stew. Here’s what she said;

So fun fact about Ayamase: According to a story that my friend once told me, the Ayamase stew actually originates from the town of Ikenne, Ogun State – a town also popular for being the home town of the late Obafemi Awolowo. For years one of the most popular buka spots in Ikenne was owned by a lady known as Madam Ayamase. Legend has it that people would come from far and wide just to have a taste of her amazing stew.

It’s important to note also that Ayamase is very similar to Ofada. They are generally within the same taste spectrum. Their look and method of preparation is very similar. However, one major difference between the stews is the type of bell peppers that are used. For Ayamase, the green peppers are used while red peppers are used in the case of Ofada.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, here is how to cook Ayamase. I hope you all try it sometime. xoxo

    Each to their own when it comes to cooking. She made this similarly to how i make mine but a little bit of meat stock makes a world of difference., stock always makes big difference to anything.
