Food

Food is at the centre of African hospitality. An African plate is a palette of colours, aromas, tastes and textures inviting all senses to the heart of the continent no matter how little the means of the host. Traditional dishes vary from one region to another but typically includes leaves-based stews, sauces, soups and savoury cakes, accompanied by starchy foods (e.g. cassava, plantain, rice or yam) and meat, fish and shellfish. Beverages accompany these meals while fruits and appetisers are typically eaten between meals. Spices in particular chili, dried or smoked seafood and of course oil give that African touch to the meal.
