Jojo Kofi Afram’s Culturally Twisted Cookbook

for tweens, teens, families and friends

Jojo Kofi Afram is a fictious character from The Adventures of Maddie Leon, written by Terresa Davis (Augustine).

Born in Ghana, West Africa, Jojo spent his tween and early teen years in Canada, and for a time, lived in Peru.  On his flight from Vancouver to Peru, he meet Maddie Leon.

Jojo’s culturally twisted cuisine shares that we the people, are more the same than we are different. Our differences, reinforced by culture, environment, and perspective are reduced when we learn about each others cultures and enjoy culturally twisted cuisine.
