What makes the motherland so unique is our wonderfully diverse cultures and traditions. When it comes to food in particular, the continent boasts a very wide variety of cuisines and delicacies spread across our various societies.
While the ingredients are relatively similar, the diversity of African cuisine largely lies in the style and technique of preparation. Due to their wide availability, most of these foods have become the backbone of meal times for most African families.
Despite the diversity, there are some popular dishes that cut across several countries on the continent and are usually prepared almost the same.
To celebrate Africa Day, Face2Face Africa shares with you 5 popular foods that can be found in multiple African countries. Feel free to share with us more dishes if we omitted some.
