Not your ordinary Mac n' Cheese

Just when we think winter is at its end and Spring is near, we get hit with another chilly blast or winter storm, and all we can think of is comfort food.

This is not your average Mac n’ Cheese.  Ukuva iAfrica spices and sauces help take this normal dish up a notch to tantalize your taste buds, with just the perfect ZING! 

What we love about these spices is that Ukuva iAfrica has already done the hard part.  They bring together the most authentic and flavorful blends, and all that’s left to do is grind, releasing these amazing tastes of Africa!
