“I have the most fabulous kitchen that exist,” said Moses Sees, 52 sitting in front of this counter, after a Sunday service. He worked for years in international hotel chains. But nothing’s is coming close to where he is based for the last six years as the head chef.
He cooks everything the fishermen bring in from the days catch. Today it is Barracuda. These are new and westernised dishes, not the one he remembered his mother cooking. HJe is very proud of the Traditional Sierra Leonean Kitchen. Its recipes are full of flavours, local products, determined by seasons and very spicy. Unlike the kitchen around and away from the coast.
The one dish transport him back in time is shrimp rice with grilled sweet peppers and a hot chilli pepper seasoning. It would be the dish his mother cooked on special occasions. By saying “I have the most fabulous kitchen that exists”. Moses means more than being situated next to a pristine white sand beach it means to him to represent a food culture that can only be found along this coastline and he is one of the guardians of this tradition
