African Foods: The African Way.

Wondering what the traditional African menu looks like? What do Africans eat?

African and Afrocaribbean foods are unrefined natural products often grown at subsistence level across that continent. From the estuaries of the Zambezi basin to the plains of Ashante, far afield to castles in Casablanca, Calabar, Lagos, Lome to the legendary port of Alexandria, African cuisines are prepared from ingredients made from cassava, millet, sorghum, cocoyam, rice, beans, matoke, plantain, palm oil, yam, fish, poultry, bush meat, beef, and an array of fruits and vegetables. And more. And more.

They are often food items rich in dietary fibers and low in refined sugars and additives, providing a balanced highly nutritional diet when properly prepared and eaten.

Most fruits like mangoes, bananas, oranges, pawpaw, pineapples, coconuts and a host of other "tropical fruits" known in the Western world comes from Africa or The Caribbeans. They are every day fruits found growing in most premises in African towns and cities and make part of the African dessert.

Facts about African foods understandably, will be better related by Africans themselves.

African foods: Often quite spicy!

That not much is known about foods from Africa stems from the fact that people from that extraction are yet to take the message of African dishes and foods outside their continent, and sell it as vigorously as the Asians have done to their food, that in many parts of the Western world, Indian foods and Indian Restaurants, Chinese foods and Chinese Restaurants and even Thai foods and Thai Restaurants are so well known that they eclipse traditional Western cuisines in certain districts.

That is about to change. In many parts of London, Paris, New York and indeed many big western cities, you are now sure to find African food stores and restaurants, offering delicious African cuisines that are as tantalizing and nutritious as food from anywhere in the world.

Africans, through their foods, as is their unique culture and values, bring exciting diversity and beauty to the human race and experience and offers opportunity to all others to explore such cuisines and find an exquisite delight in the taste of Africa.

Africans, wherever they are, take pride in cooking and eating carefully prepared meals, devoid of modern day refinement and contamination. They seek natural produce, fresh from the farms near their homes where possible, prepare them into variety of finish products and serve these to the family or household, all enjoying their meal round the table or by the fire side.

Meal times are sacrosanct. Stories are told, though children are often advised not to speak much to prevent choking. Morals are taught. Community and societal values are reinforced. It is that time of the day that every member of the family looks forward to.
