african Cuisine

The African continent has been shaped by many influences including Arabic, Portuguese, French and British.

In marrying these cultures together with the use of African herbs and spices and other ingredients, an intensely powerful cuisine has evolved. At its heart is the chilli pepper, imparting an explosive fire to its many dishes rivalled only by the searing heat of the African plains themselves.

Our South African curry powder is an essential ingredient in the classic Cape Malay dish of Bobotie, a delicious curried medley of minced beef and dried fruit topped with a golden mix of eggs, African herbs and milk.

Africa spices can also be enjoyed as a snack, in the delicious mix known as Tsire Powder. This chunky ground peanut and roasted spice mix originates in West Africa and can be sprinkled over barbecued meats, fish and salads, mixed with oil for use as a condiment or simply eaten as an unusual nibble with pre-dinner drinks!
