Product Description

The Kilombo Cookbook: Aja Foods and ReAfrikanization Diet
From the Introduction
To view eating habits as a matter of culture is to overstand that they are a product of codes of conduct and the structure of social relationships of the society in which they occur. What and how people eat may, indeed, usefully be overstood in terms of a system whose coherence is afforded by the social and cultural organization with which it is associated.
Captive ship cargoes brought crops directly from Máwùfɛ (Afrika) to North America for captive Máwùfɛnumeto (Afrikans) to consume during their passage to the New World under the transatlantic captive trade. These crops included several basic foods central to the Afrikan diet. This book is a document of some of the core foods and recipes eaten by our captive Aja (mostly referred to as Fon of Benin Republic) Afrikan ancestors. All of these foods can be cooked in your own home wherever you reside. Included in this book are authentic Aja food name words, images of the foods, and very key food and cooking related terminology in the Aja language focusing on the Aja of Benin Republic,  West Afrika. ReAfrikanization is not just about clothing and change of beliefs. Diet is intricately involved in this process. Also, many are not aware of the tremendous health benefits of Afrikan foods. Yet, research will show the wonder-world of health as it relates to Afrikan foods. 
Containing a glossary of over 300 Aja (Fon dialect) food related words and being in full color, this book is yet another unique and major contribution to the Kilombo Paradigm of Afrikan sovereignty. Most Afrikan cookbooks do not include any terminology in an Afrikan language outside of the names of the foods and certain ingredients. However, Kilombo Cookbook will allow you to be armed with many Aja (Fon) words and phrases associated with food and food related activity. Also unique to this type of work is that this book identifies various deities that many of these foods are offered to. 
Free your diet and you free your mind and spirit. The recipes in this book were accumulated from various information researched from the people from Benin Republic in the cities of Agbome, Wydah, Cove, Porto Novo, Godome, Xevie and Kento.

Services at Kilombo Restoration and Healing
It should be noted that we also provide spiritual services to the general Afrikan community such as:
General Ifa divinations
Roots Readings/Ipilese Fa - Detailed Fa reading that speaks on your true ancestral origins, ancestral family and clan names, the names of the ancestors you descend from on both sides, the years in which they were put into captivity, family occupations and family deities, family "curses" or spiritual ailments and how to remove them and much more
Zoto Readings - a Fa reading specific to the Aja culture of Benin, Togo, Parts of Southern Ghana, and Badagry SW Nigeria. This reading reveals your sponsoring ancestor. Among the Aja (also called Fon people) one's zoto is very important to know and is a major part of knowing one's destiny. The Zoto is the ancestral guiding light of the individual. This Zoto often has left the earth without fulfilling a key mission in life. This, they will hope to achieve, through the living descendant that he/she sponsors.
Hand of Ifa
