What do you like about African food?
The variety, taste, texture and more taste. One thing that I’ve learned through my interaction with my brothers and sisters from within the continent is the spirit of Ubuntu, giving and sharing.
When we sitting down enjoying the meal (no matter how big or small the food is), it will come in a bowl with rice/ attiéké / pounded yam serve with piece of chicken and a variety of fish and vegetables. We eat from one bowl sharing that piece of chicken/fish and vegetables.
There’s lots of laughter, we use our hands, right hand to be precise (well, we wash them first!).

Why should more people try out African cuisine?
Our food is packed with nutrition, organic ingredients are used, and it not just that you are eating food for the sake of eating, but it also has great health & healing benefits.
If a lot of people can give themselves a chance to explore these wonders that mama Africa has to offer, I swear they won’t go back. It is a pity that not much is said about authentic African cuisine, what we get is a European standard of what supposed to be African food and that is not right.
We need to take ownership and support those people who own restaurants that specialise in African cuisine.
