Cooking in Katwadde

December 9, 2017

I have never been much of a cook. But I always loved my mom’s cooking. She is also the one who came with the next idea; to make a cookbook with recipes from the women from Uganda.


I really loved the idea. While we are in Katwadde, I will ask the women to write down a recipe that they love. Then, when I’m back home, I can combine all these recipes together to form a cookbook with recipes from Uganda. We can then sell these cookbooks at home to raise money to sponsor other projects in Katwadde.


Besides raising money with it, I also think it’s a really good way of learning more about the culture. Because food is the centre of any culture, holidays are build around it, families get together for meals and traditions are made from it. To really get to know the culture of the people in Katwadde, we should get to know the food they eat.


But, to release the cookbooks, we will have to have to get them printed,. Before we do this, we would like to know if people are interested in buying this cookbook. So if you are, leave a comment under this post. They will take a while to make but if enough people are interested, the cookbook is going to happen!

In Uganda is a little rural village called Katwadde. When John Ssentamu moved to this village he started the Good Shepard Primary School for the children who couldn't go to school before for multiple reasons. Wiard, Jari and Iris have been there to meet the community. We want to help both the school and the community so they can develop into the best that they can be. On this site you can read about what we have done and what we want to do in the future. We hope you enjoy it.
