Eating like in Africa
How good African food tastes, shows our African stew from Nigeria. I first ate it many years ago on a visit to an African restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa. In Marco's African Place. Not far from the waterfront, the restaurant still exists today. Whether the African stew is still on the menu, I do not know. But you can still eat African food there. They do not only serve South African cuisine in this restaurant. If you are looking for typical African food on a South Africa trip, this restaurant is the right place. The dishes served here come from many African countries.
I remember sitting in the loft of the restaurant, listening to the joyful songs of African musicians and letting this stew from Nigeria melt in my mouth. At that time I learned to appreciate traditional African cuisine. Since then, African food has been on our menu regularly.
Today is #WorldFoodDay, and the World Food Program of the UN equates food with the terms family, tradition, hope, adventure, culture and health. This interpretation perfectly expresses, what food to savor means for us. That's the perfect occasion, to introduce you to the recipe for this Nigerian Stew.

African food - How to prepare the stew
Food like in Africa is easy to cook. You chop the onions fine.
