    This looks delish but don’t have access to one ingredient, sure wish I did. I love your videos and really appreciate receiving them. If I were still in New York, I’d probably be able to find what I need to make this, but until then I’ll just have to salivate watching the video. Thanks very much.

    • I’m glad you love the videos Ronnie! 🙂 The ingredient you don’t have, is it the Okpa flour?

      • Ronnie Cobb says:


        • Awww Ronnie, I was hoping the answer will be a NO, that it is an ingredient we can replace. O well!

          • Ronnie Cobb says:

            “that it is an ingredient we can replace. O well!”

            did you mean to say can’t replace? If you meant can replace, what is the ingredient I can purchase here (USA) to replace it.

            • “I was hoping that your answer will be a NO, that it (the ingredient you will mention) is one we can replace.”

              But you said yes and sadly, Okpa is so unique, I can’t think of any alternative. 🙁

              • Ronnie Cobb says:

                Thanks, sniff, sniff I’m so sorry, I won’t get to taste this unique flavored dish.

Comment to show me you are alive and cooking some delicious food!
