What Do West Africans Eat?
What do people of West African origin eat? What do they cook, drink and serve family and friends at wedding and gatherings? These traditional meals are documented here. So your family heritage and culture is West African and you are interested in the food, recipes and meals you ate as a child and wish to pass these on to your children.
What are the main ingredients used in West African cooking? Cooking styles change from generation to generation. What are the differences with how our parents ate and cooked back home? What is a typical meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Here recorded are many recipes with quantities used in our cooking, as the practice common in the days of our grandparents and parents was putting ingredients together without actually weighing them out, not surprising since this was the practice for generations.
