I visited Africa when I was 8 or 9 and remember having pic related in Kenya and Zimbabwe.

I always thought it was called "sudza" because it looked and tasted like soap.

Does anyone else like Ethiopian food? I went to a pretty good place in DC last time I was there and it really kills me that where I live now doesn't have any Ethiopian places.

Maybe they don't have meat factories like where you live. Free range shit. Or maybe it's just a different breed.

Can you guys literally not discuss African or Indian cuisine without devolving into this kind of meaningless shitposting.

It's like you've never even tasted any of either cuisine.

>>7037389
I'm a big fan of Nigerian and West African food. Maafe (peanut stew, usually with beef, root vegetables, and greens, really easy to make), jollof rice, fufu, akara, edikangikong, and efo riro, all were good-great. I have a friend from Sierra Leone who makes me food sometimes, I don't know many of the dishes she's made but they've ALL been blow-your-mouth-off spicy and all delicious. Some were rlly similar to Nigerian stuff I've had.

I'm only really experienced other than that with Ethiopian cuisine, which is a shame. I'd love to try some other African foods, or visit someday.

>>7037389
I find it hard to believe that tomatoes, cultivated in South America and used for culinary purposes in Mexico, are part of African cuisine, but I suppose tomatoes and peppers are everywhere. Was food just shitty and boring everywhere before spicy peppers from the Americas cross-pollinated to every culture?

Pretty much, actually. It's actual hard to exaggerate how massive an effect the Columbian Exchange had on world culture, cuisine, birth rates, death rates, famine, technology, ecology, etc.

It literally transformed the world. If potatoes had never come to Europe, it's very possible their populace would still be suffering for it. Sweet potatoes and corn in China saved much of the rural pop. from starvation, and likewise in Africa. Chilis were adopted both for flavor and for food preservation purposes.

Read 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus and (more on this point) 1493: Exploring the World Columbus Created, both by Charles C. Mann, amazing books.

I've always thought Ethiopian food looked tasty, but I've never had the chance to try it.
The food I had in Uganda was the worst though - plain boiled or grilled fish with plain boiled plantains or rice.

I recently tried ethiopian food for the first time and was underwhelmed. The flat bread has a very odd texture. The meat and veg dishes were all mushy, the ones that weren't bland were fire hot. Just my opinion though.

That stuff has so many different names. My parents are from SA where it's called "pap", so I always had weird Africa food as a child and that was my favourite, particularly kreemy meal brand. For breakfast as a porridge with some butter in is just amazing. It never tasted like soap to me, was always just so creamy.

Ethiopian is really interesting. There's a place in London called Lalibela which is particularly good; it's a great place to take people because the idea of serving everything on a giant sourdough pancake is so alien but also attractive to westerners.

Yeah, it probably didn't taste like soap, as much as my childhood mind remembered it that way.

I remember it being a really bland, dense sponge like thing. Not at all creamy.

In culinary school they honestly taught us that South Africa, Morocco, and Ethiopia were the only three countries in Africa with internationally recognized cuisine (according to the school, I guess?).

>yes, you were making a stale joke

But yeah, out of those three countries I'd go with Ethiopian food every time (not that I've had too much S. African food).

I'm pretty sure most, if not all of their cattle are not taurine cattle like the ones in North America and Europe(aside from the few that were probably brought over). They are of the zebu variety, or a third species of auroch was domesticated separately from the european and asian aurochs but later mashed together with the domesticated asian aurochs.

Being that they're a different species from our taurine cattle, maybe thats why but I hear zebu is tough stuff.
