My cousin is to travel to Africa next year. She loves to try food from all over the country. What type of cuisine should she try while in Africa? Is there anything you suggest as a "must eat?"

Samosas are good. It's a fried pastry with meat and potatoes and other foody goodness inside. My sister makes them because her husband is from Kenya.

What part of Africa is your cousin going to visit? From what I know, each region has it's own specialties.

Anyway, I found this nice list of African dishes, they are listed in alphabetical order but I'm sure your cousin can pick out the ones that are served in the region she's going.
The foods have very odd names, but the explanations will make everything clear :P

It is funny that there is food from all different cultures found in restaurants globally, but we seldom hear about African food.

I visited Egypt and I fell in love with its light and delicious cuisine
Kushari can satisfy your lunch appetite no matter how hungry you are and it`s made of common ingredients
As Christian visitor, I was offered Fatta, which is simply delicious

Adriana The link you shared was perfect. I want to watch youtube and see how to prepare some of those dishes. I love all the fresh ingredients, it maybe a little hard to find some of those spices but I will have to check the internet thoroughly . Maybe I can really enjoy some of those dishes from an authentic restaurant.
