3 Vacations Tips from Someone With Experience

Top 5 African Dishes You Shouldn’t Miss on Your Next Trip Africa is a place where you’ll find dishes that are a combination of indigenous recipes and those that come with Dutch, Indian, French, Malaysian and other foreign influences. If you’re bound for this part of the world anytime soon, whether it’s your first or nth time, don’t forget to try the following: Biltong and Droewors Before the era of refrigerators, dry curing was how South African tribes preserved their meat. Usually made from beef, biltong is air-dried meat sliced thinly, while droewors is a whole sausage that is also prepared air-dried. The two are cured using a mix of vinegar, salt, sugar and spices (usually coriander and pepper) before they are hung to dry. The finished product is well-loved by health buffs because of its low fat and high protein content. Nowadays, biltong and droewors makers add flavorings such as chili or garlic and make use of other meat aside from beef, like ostrich or wild boar.
Options Tips for The Average Joe
Jollof Rice and Egusi Soup
Learning The Secrets About Vacations
Jollof rice is an African gastronomic treasure that comes from Nigeria, and is believed to be the origin of the Cajun dish, jambalaya. In its basic form, it is a spicy, single-pot dish of peppers, tomatoes, and onions. It’s often served during festive activities together with other Nigerian dishes such as egusi soup, which is made with bitter leaf and ground melon seeds, fried plantains, or mashed yam (iyan or fufu). Braai/Shisa Nyama Meats Yet another well-loved South African dish is meat cooked at a braai or shisa nyama (literally translates to “burn the meat”). Braais started in Johannesburg townships among butchers who cooked and sold barbecues in front of their shops during weekends. Today, local communities still party during weekends at braais, sharing food with each other. You would find there a vibrant atmosphere, with lively music and a near-endless choice of meats, from chicken to vors to beef and all – definitely not for vegetarians! Cape Malay Curry In the 1700s, Indonesians, Malaysians, and Indians in Cape Town as slaves to the Dutch and French populations, carrying with them their native spices and cooking methods. Cooked with local produce, spices like turmeric, cinnamon, chili and saffron made such aromatic stews and curries that are still well-loved today. Piri Piri Chicken Piri piri chicken is an incredible blend of African, Arab, Portugese and oriental flavors that makes it one of the stars of the Mozambique cuisine. Its highlight include aromatic spices, hot piri piri and milky coconut sauces, and a sprinkling of peanuts and cashews. Tourists know this dish simply as grilled chicken piri piri, which is typically served with matapa or cassava leaves cooked in peanut sauce. There are so many more native dishes in Africa that deserve a mention, but these five are probably the most worthy. Again, if you’re headed there soon, keep this list in mind.
