Rachel Laryea, a Ghanaian caterer who resides in the United States has come out with mindblowing recipes under her Kelewele brand that make ice cream, brownies, burgers and cookies all from plantain.
In a short documentary sighted by YEN.com.gh, Rachel Laryea indicated that she started the business just out of the passion to create other things apart from Kelewele, kakro or tatale which plantain is normally used for.
She indicates that most kinds of food that are made with plantain around the world especially in black communities are only usually roasted, fried or cooked into the various dishes.
According to the talented young lady, many people who come to buy her products are usually amazed by the extent of creativity put in the works.
For most people, coming to Rachel's Kelewele is the first time they get to know that plantain can be used for cookies, burgers, brownies, milk, ice cream and more.
In Rache's own words:
"They're curious, disbelieving and in shock. But they try it and like it and I tell them all the other plantain things that we make like brownies, burgers and cookies, they are all just"
In other news, it has almost become a norm for many young girls seeking stardom and many female celebrities out there to post raunchy pictures of themselves in order to gain traction on social media.
In most cases, it is thought that gaining online traction eventually translates to money as the exposure gained attracts contracts, deals and individuals who may be interested in their affairs.
While that is the case for many, there are also a good number of female Ghanaian celebrities who refrain from the 'strategy' being used by many ladies but still remain attractive and gain massive following online.
