From Pasta to Pigfoot

The Perfect Recipe: Take 1 girl.
Infuse a swirl of African flavouring.
Stir in a dollop of English cream.
Mix in some sun, fun and good old-fashioned romance.
Serve immediately.

Dismissed as a cultural lightweight by the man she is desperate to please, under-achieving PA, Faye Bonsu, is on a mission to find love. A disastrous night out leaves pasta-fanatic Faye’s romantic dreams in tatters and underscores her alienation from her African heritage.

Leaving her cosy middle-class life in London’s leafy Hampstead to find what she’s missing, Faye is whisked into the hectic social whirlpool of Ghana where she meets Sonny, the pretty-boy womaniser, Edwin, her host’s America-crazy boyfriend, Baaba of the enormous hips and sardonic tongue, Stuart the British expat who loves all things (and women) Ghanaian, and the handsome Rocky Asante, a cynical, career-obsessed banker with no time for women…until now.

Transported into a world of food, fun and sun, and faced with choices she has never thought possible, Faye is forced to discover that no matter how far you travel, you can’t find love until you find yourself.
