To help promote the use of biofortified ingredients, HarvestPlus has engaged celebrated chefs to create delicious recipes using them. This includes recipes created by MasterChef finalists Chef Anamika Sony and Pujeet Mehta, both from India.
We also worked with local communities to re-create popular local dishes with biofortified foods. Some of these favourites include a delicious crunchy snack in Nigeria called combobite, and a family favorite from Bangladesh called Payesh that is usually cooked for special occasions and birthdays.
Women and children are also more likely to suffer from the effects of hidden hunger. That’s why these recipes are a favourite with parents worldwide who have seen first hand how biofortified foods have improved the health of their children.
