African cuisine is yet to take its place on the global stage. For so long, the level of internationalization of most African cuisines has remained low. When accepted internationally, food is a cultural commodity that helps to promote cultures globally. Asides from the cultural nuances, African cuisine can promote gastronomic tourism, generate foreign earnings through food sales in international markets, and accelerate value addition on African agriculture.
African cuisine has suffered a near-total absence in the international literature of global food. Yet African dishes are known for their versatility, delectable flavors, rich textures, and surprisingly healthy bases.
We want to amplify African cuisine to our global audiences.
Join us on this journey as we, through our monthly newsletter, feature delicious foods from across Africa and share some of the ingredients that inspire these traditional African tastes. We will attempt to preserve the authentic tastes of Africa, memorialize flavourful dishes in African homes and draw some attention to the indigenous African food flavor and enhancer market.
Welcome to the first edition of A Taste of Africa!
