African food thread, starting with Kenyan. No memes pls
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.
I went on a tour of Africa (just 7 countries though) and honestly, the beef I had there was unanimously better than anything I had at home. Any ideas why?
usually eaten with stew, texture is almost like bread dough
pretty hard to get right if you're doing it yourself
Here's some traditional African cuisine garnished with a bit of parsley.
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.
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.
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.
North African food allowed too OP?
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.

Maybe you'd be happier on tumblr, SJW queer. Then you can post all night about how white people never invented anything and gender is a social construct
How is enjoying another culture's food instantly equatable to being an SJW? Do I have to suck the cock of every White male in the vicinity and sig heil to burgers to appease you, you faggot?
Sometimes I don't know who's more cancerous, SJWs or you goosestepping /pol/tards
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.
Most people /pol/post because they get this hyperemotional reaction out of retards like you
Just report all the posts that trigger you so you can feel like you accomplished something
Not the anon you're responding to but your assumption is that this board is otherwise not shit when politics isn't discussed. /ck/ may be one of the slowest boards on 4chan but honestly it's just as cancerous as /pol/. Everything on here devolves into worthless shitposting and fighting within 1-2 posts
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.
Well, there's the Sahara, for starters
i hope you like palm oil cause thats what nigger food tastes like.
>pretends to be an oldfag
>shits up thread with stale memes
>lol niggerz xdd
>gets triggered when called out
I'm not the same poster you were talking to originally I just think you're pathetic.
Is how much others lives have been wasted on an image board that big of a concern to you? That's funny.
Anybody here have experience with Moroccan food? I am going there for a week next summer.
>telling someone to eat meat
>literally reacts to board-topic threads by shitposting unironically
>gets called out
>LOL I TRIGGERED YOU HAHAHA GET OUT OF MY SECRET CLUB HOUSE
i'm not even him but you literally need to kill yourself if anything that isn't /b/-related triggers the fuck out of you.
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).
Yeah but he trolled them and upset their sensitive feels so they've been waving their dicks all over every board since then whining that things they don't like exist and anyone who disagrees is a feminist sjw faggot jew reddit tumblr big fat meany stupid face.
I love injera so much I tried making it at home. I failed. But I'll keep trying!
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.
