About A Kitchen in Uganda

A Kitchen In Uganda (AKIU) is a food blog that is notorious for creating out-of-the-box dishes and food experiences. It celebrates the art of preparing food, exploring Ugandan food history and fusing local indigenous foods with modern touch. With beautiful visuals and step by step guides for recreating recipes, AKIU has become a go-to site for meal inspiration all over the world.

History of A Kitchen in Uganda

A Kitchen In Uganda was created in 2014 after realizing a gap in online food media catering to consumers on the African continent. With its emphasis of local and indigenous produce, it is the best place for you if you are the creative type and love experimenting in the kitchen and exploring new cuisines. AKIU’s goal is to inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and exercise your creativity while appreciating the abundance of local ingredients that Uganda so proudly Boasts of.  With limited online resources about Ugandan food, AKIU has quickly become an authoritative voice in Ugandan food.

    1. Hi Samuel. It is good to hear from you.
      Thanks for watching and visiting the blog.
      I hope you do find something to try and let me know when you do.
      Unfortunately, I do not eat or prepare rabbit meat.
      Though I can direct you to a Facebook group: Kampala Food Network (their twitter handle is @KFN_foodies) that has members who prepare it.
      I hope this helps.


  4. You have a very beautiful and creative blog. I love creative cooking and i find this amazing. Thanks
