Cameroonian Lunch at Limbe

Cameroonian Lunch at Limbe

Cameroon had been colonized by the German, English and French. It’s cuisine is unique and delicious and I am so happy to have a chance to taste the national dish-Ndole at Martine’s family friend house! I believe it’s the best experience I had so far because unlike eating it at a restaurant, I saw how this national dish is made from Scratch!

Rhonda is from the Caribbean Island-Trinidad and Tobago and she know a lot about the history of slavery,voodoo and West African Cuisine since her family were those slaves coming from Ghana/Benin. She said her family still practice voodoo back in Trinidad and the Caribbean cuisine and West African cuisine have so much in common  She is also traveling with me right now so I aam so happy that I can learn a lot from her and Martine.

The national dish they are making is Ndole- a stew consisting of fish or beef, peanuts and bitter leave. It’s very labour intensive since it took 4-5 hours just to make this dish from scratch.

Everyone is wearing this Kaba dress called”Gle du-rrah”.

And to make Miondo(it’s grated cassava wrapped in forest leaves) need 4 days. It’s chewy and yummy!!! I am so in love with Miondo I declare I love it more than FuFu!

The best part was to eat the Ndole and Miondo! The Ndole had Peppers and Onions inside and it tasted so delicious.

  4. Dearest Tammy,
    Good for you that you LOVED those special dishes. Sure, those slaves did take their food culture with them and it will be almost a parallel culture still.
    Enjoy your time with those two special guides; makes all the difference!
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette
