The Djiboutilicious Cookbook has been for sale now for five years. I’ve had several requests over the years for an e-book version and it is finally ready. It is available in MOBI (Kindle) and EPUB (pretty much everything else) and includes a clickable index and table of contents, both of which are essential for making e-cookbooks user-friendly.
How do you cook in a country with no jars of Ragu or packaged cake mixes? The first time someone handed me a tomato in Somaliland and asked me to make spaghetti sauce, I was at a total loss. Popcorn without a microwave? Were such wonders even possible?
They certainly are and hundreds of chefs have proven it, using Djiboutilicious.
And now, even if you live in a country without reliable postal service, you can get a copy of Djiboutilicious.
“Djiboutilicious has become my go to cookbook in Dji – and I know that I can find most of the ingredients here,” Paula P.
“Djiboutilicious is my go to book when I want to cook something I know is truly homemade. No, “add a can of this” or a “package of that.” All ingredients can usually be found in my kitchen or just around the corner at the dukaan (store),” Jess D.

I’d have liked to see a few pages of the book for a look see first. Most people do that on ebook recipe books.
I will put together a couple pages and post them up on the book’s page. Good idea.
Sounds interesting, but I agree — would like to see a couple of pages, too.
I just loaded the page, under the Djiboutlicious bar across the top, a sub-page will pop up if you put your cursor over that and there are some sample recipes there.
