many dishes as well, but meat is used sparingly.
When meat is eaten, it is commonplace to combine it with fish, including
Some popular West African recipes and dishes include:
- Amala - A dish made from yam flour and hot water, eaten with soup or vegetables.

It is usually eaten with pepper soup (obe ata), with vegetables with meat or fish, or with
- Fufu - A starchy vegetable paste made by boiling root vegetables
and mashing. It is a staple food in West Africa, and is usually made
principally from yams, although other ingredients such as cocoyam, maize
or plantains may be added. It is often served with a soup, the idea
being to scoop up a ball of fufu, make an indentation in that, fill the
indentation with that, and then swallow the whole thing (among some people,
chewing may be considered a breach of etiquette).
- Jollof rice - This dish, probably originally
from Senegal (Ghana and Nigeria are also sometimes
claimed as the source of the recipe),
has become popular
all over West Africa. It is made from rice, tomatoes, onions, seasonings and spices.
Vegetables and meats may also be added.
- Kenkey - A sour dough dumpling that is eaten in Ghana.
It is made from fermented corn (maize). The fermented corn is partially cooked,

If the topic about African cuisine mystifies you, you would not be alone. Africa is arguably the world's most diverse region. It is an entire continent with 55 recognised independent states. When it comes to the food, you would be right to assume that there is more to it than meets the eye. is there such thing as African cuisine?
Africa has got a mixture of indigenous foods, with European, Asian and Middle Eastern influences depending on what region you venture into. This can at times make it very difficult to distinguish between indigenous foods and those that have heavy external influences. At the same time, by recognising the culinary signatures of the cuisines of particular African regions, we are able to trace the outward influence African cuisine has had on other cultures and vice versa, for example the links between West African and South American foods, or evenCaribbean food.
There used to be no real "African Chefs" because much of the knowledge of African cuisine has not been formalised or viewed in a professional light. Things are changing fast now and some African chefs are emerging. African cuisine is also vastly distinctive from region to region, therefore pairing different types of African cuisines can prove to be tricky. This short book was designed as an introduction for beginners to the rich and blended culinary traditions from various african countries.
