Eating in Africa’s many different Regions
“What does one think of when they think of African cuisine? With such a vast continent, the diversity of African food must differ greatly. Eating and drinking habits differ to a great extent from one region to the next.
Central Africa, which includes the vast rainforest basin of the Congo River, has perhaps remained the most unaffected by outside influences. Except for the widespread adaptation of cassava, peanut and chili pepper plants which arrived with the slave trade in the 16th Century. Central African cooking can perhaps be considered the closest to traditional food of all the regions.”
