We’ve picked up a couple of Malagasy words from the island country of Madagascar and we are very proud to break down this mouthful for you. Voanjobory refers to Bambara nuts or Bambara beans; Henakisoa is pork. Ranovola is a drink made from rice. We’ll tell you how they all come together 😊

Mention “Liberian Cabbage” and many people may think you’re referring to a specific kind of cabbage grown in Liberia. Mention “Liberian Cabbage” to someone from Liberia, and odds are they’ll tell you something different. In Liberia, we try Cabbage. It is made with the well-known vegetable, but it is so much more fun to eat than ordinary cabbage 😊

What’s better than one dish? Two! We solemnly declare that the fact that we messed the first dish up had nothing to do with making a second dish *face palm*. In eSwatini, formerly called Swaziland, we serve up two corn-based dishes. The first is what we thought was Sishwala. The second is called Samp.

We love desserts that can be eaten for breakfast!

Akwadu is a sweet coconut and plantain / banana breakfast bake from Equatorial Guinea. We are plantain lovers, but we will try not to judge if you use bananas 😊.
