      Cooking and cuisine are creative compositions at the center of all cultural expressions in every community. Food as a topic in African history adds taste and texture to events and personalities.

      African cuisine is conceived, cooked, and consumed, first around home fires, cooking pots, skillets, spits, and later in market stalls and restaurants. Eating together, commensality, was thus not just nutrition but also a measure of human values, linking communities, neighbors, and friends around tastes and sequences of flavour expressing who they were daily. One of the typical African cooking approaches is the one-pot.

      An example of one-pot food is stewed potatoes. They are nutritious, delicious, and filling! It is perfect as a comforting and complete family meal or an impressive addition to a weeknight dinner or dinner party. This is a well-loved African stew that is especially popular in Cameroon.

      Whatever combination of ingredients you choose will bring their unique qualities to the dish, so go ahead and have fun with it. You’re going to enjoy this, a taste of African cuisine and the comfort and simplicity of a stew. Try it! Love it!
