Hattie Carthan 11th annual Food Heritage Festival

This year’s theme “Our Food is our Culture “ - A community offering of Foods from the African Diaspora.

One of the most interesting things about the food of the African Diaspora is how closely it connects the people who prepare it, often without them even realizing it. There are several characteristics that almost all cuisines of the African Diaspora share: seasoning techniques; cooking techniques such as stewing and frying; the prevalence of starchy mashes or porridges eaten with stews and soups or on their own; Among African, Latin and Caribbean cuisines, ingredients are nearly identical, most likely due to the similarity in climate. Tropical foods such as plantains, cassava, coconuts and palm oil are staples in West African and Afro-Brazilian cooking. The distinctive ingredients of southern cuisine, as well as the styles of cooking them, have been common for centuries in Africa.
