THE VIBRANT SPICES OF...AFRICA

Packed with heat, sweet and smokiness, African cuisine is always a surprise and a delight. From piri-piri punchiness to signature claypot cooking, it’s a continent’s worth of flavour that excites the senses.

TASTE OF AFRICA

Rice is always at the heart of the table with African cooking. Soaking up stews, soups and one-pot wonders at grand feasts and big batch cooking for gatherings of beloved family and friends.

DID YOU KNOW?

Easy-to-grow carbohydrates such as yams, sweet potatoes, corn, rice millet and cassava are all favourites in delicious soups and stews.


Dance isn’t a spectator event in Africa. Audiences are encouraged to get on their feet and take part in the gestures, complete with masks, costumes and props.

THE SIGNATURE FLAVOUR OF AFRICAN CUISINE

Tamarind

Indigenous to tropical Africa, Tamarind is a uniquely sweet and tangy paste, made from the fruit pulp of the Tamarindus tree. Find it in rich curries, smoothies and all kinds of tasty dishes.

WHICH RICE FOR AFRICAN CUISINE?

Each variety of rice grain brings something different, choosing the right type of rice for your dish is important. Your dishes deserve the best, let’s take it to the next level and create authentic plates that impress.

For African cuisine, easy cook grains which have been parboiled which makes it a popular grain for one-pot African dishes. Our Easy Cook range of Basmati and Long Grain, known for its robust and separate grains help them stand up to longer cooking. Ideal for those one-pot like Jollof rice or stuffings and casseroles.
