African Spices

If we think of all the emerging food trends that have taken America by storm in the last sixty years they all stemmed from immigrants coming to America in increasing numbers. After WW II pizza and Italian were all the rage. After the Vietnam war ended in the mid-70's we saw the rise of Vietnamese and Thai food. The 80's and 90's brought us Mexican and it's hybrid Tex-Mex. Well African is poised to carve out its own niche. The world's second largest continent has a wide range of dishes and flavors to titillate your taste buds and here you'll find a huge selection of some of the most commonly used spices and chiles to create some of these authentic dishes at home.

First time trying to create a dish from that part of the world? We'll help you out there as well as we've got numerous recipes from the various regions that are sure to spark some interest for the adventurous cook who loves to experiment in the kitchen. Some of our favorite African recipes that we've re-created in our test kitchen have included African Vegetable Stew, Spicy Berbere Lentil Stew and Chicken Tagine.
