About the publication

This report summarises the findings from four Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) held in Tanzania, with the aim of informing the development of a battery-supported electric cooking concept, eCook. It is part of a broader programme of work, designed to identify and investigate the opportunities and challenges that await in high impact markets such as Tanzania. Everyday cooks from rural, urban and peri-urban contexts were asked about their current cooking practices and how they aspire to cook in the future. The participatory sessions involved a live cooking demonstration of popular local foods with a prototype eCook device.
