Why Taste of Côte d’Ivoire ? | An A to Z Guide to Ivorian Cuisine
When I was living in both the US and the UK, I remember being asked on various occasions to describe some of our staple dishes. The question “What is the food like in Côte d’Ivoire” kept coming up every time I would introduce myself and where I was from.
Though several articles have been written on African cuisine being the next gastronomic trend or the rise of African cuisine, the truth of the matter is people around the world are still unfamiliar with our food culture, let alone specific dishes from the 54 countries.
Chances are…they perhaps have heard about Jollof rice because of the ongoing battle between Ghanaian Jollof vs Nigerian Jollof,but that's pretty much about it.
As a proud advocate of culinary tourism, I want to learn, explore and showcase the Ivorian Food Culture to the world starting off with this A to Z Guide to Ivorian Cuisine.
There are more than 60 ethnic tribes in Côte d’Ivoire and each one of them has a particular way of cooking, its own staple meals and history behind them…and this new content is an invitation to delve into one bite at a time.
