Mujje Tulye – Celebrating local cuisine on a global platform
This WikiBook belongs to the Come and Eat collection, featuring Mujje Tulye from Uganda and Cote d'Ivoire. These two Mujje Tulye WikiBooks are the beginning of what we hope will be a series of similar WikiBooks that celebrates and provides recipes for local cuisine from different countries and cultures in Africa in a global format that is accessible to all.
The project started as a facet of WikiAfrica's Kumusha Takes Wiki project and was given impetus through the events that surrounded the Wiki Loves Africa 2014 competition. Wiki Loves Africa 2014 encouraged the donation of photos and media that illustrated all aspects of Cuisine from Africa including, but not limited to, production, procurement, processing, preparation, sales, and eating. During the competition volunteer groups in several countries, including Uganda and Cote d'Ivoire, held events such as cook-offs, cooking demonstrations, photo hunts, edit-a-thons and Wikipedia introduction sessions. The photos that you see illustrating these WikiBooks were drawn from entries to the competition and from the work of the Wikipedians in Community in Uganda and Cote d'Ivoire who have gathered images from agrarian-based communities in their countries.
As with all Wikimedia projects, these WikiBooks are designed as a starting point. Please feel free to add your own recipe, a photo or photographs, or videos to illustrate an aspect of the book (a cooking method), or a whole new section. Please also feel free to start a Mujje Tulye book on the cuisine/s that are part of your country or represent your culture.
