Table Manners Aside is a food blog I co-own that is focused on restaurant reviews, recipes and food news. Originally Seattle focused and now expanded to include Atlanta, one of TMA’s key differentiators is its aim on being the cultural bridge between the Seattle/Atlanta food community, Halal foodies and Nigerian cuisine. We have worked with various restaurants and brands to host events that share more about Muslim culture and Nigerian cuisine. As well as partnered with restaurants and brands on media announcements and sponsored content.

Moi Moi in a Jar Recipe

Moi Moi is a traditional Nigerian dish, basically bean pudding. This recipe is a twist on the traditional way of making moi moi ( which is wrapped in a banana leaf). It’s a take that makes moi moi more accessible (banana leaves are not everywhere) and more visually enticing.
