African food is as vast as its culture and varies depending on the region. Traders, immigrants and invaders have inﬂuenced most of African cuisines. with immense enthusiasm both indigenous Africans and visitors have described the authentic African food culture as an eclectic experience.

Jollaf Rice is originally from Senegal by Wolof people. Another iconic food in the West African region is Fufu. Fufu is made from root vegetables such as yams, cocoyams, or cassava and typically served with a dish of Soup. West African Stew is normally prepared with hot spices, vegetables, melon seeds, and greens.
East African food comes with a mixture of diverse culinary inﬂuences through trade and commerce. Arabic influences can be seen in East African cuisine. Eor example, steamed rice is served with spices such as saffron, cloves and cinnamon. indian workers and immigrants also brought their foods with them, such as spiced vegetable curries, lentil soups, chapattis and pickles. Oranges, lemons and limes are frequently used in cooking, while other fruits such as mangoes, papayas and pineapples are eaten for dessert.
North Africa cuisine has been heavily influenced over the centuries by the ingredients brought by traders, invaders and migrants. The Arabs introduced spices such as saffron, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. The Ottoman Turks brought sweet pastries and other baked foods. wheat and its by-product, semolina, were introduced early on. The nomadic Berbers adapted semolina into couscous, one of the main staples of the region.
