African Community Eating Culture and Ethiopian Cuisine

African Community Eating Culture and Ethiopian Cuisine. Soon after I got to Melbourne, I was introduced to African cuisine, which taught me fascinating information about African communal eating culture.

Upon my initial attempt, I found African food to be uninteresting. As part of my cultural checklist, I was happy to try a new meal even though I didn’t think I would crave it. We enjoyed another round of African food, and then another, since Fafa liked it. I eventually gradually acquired a taste for and appreciation for it.

Collective Dining Customs

The communal eating concept, when family and friends gather around a large plate of food and eat from it together by taking the food with their right hands, is the most thrilling aspect of African cuisine. I’m not totally unfamiliar with the idea of eating with your right hand because in Indian culture, we don’t share plates or banana leaves.

I have adored this ritual ever since we tried it. Our sense of community is strengthened when we share food and plates with our loved ones and family. 

African Food

African food is tasty and distinctive in and of itself. To my Indonesian palate, it’s like South Indian food’s younger sister—much tastier but still rather hot.

My current favorites are the Biray Kulwa, which is beef cooked with Ethiopian spices, and the Doro Tibs, which is chicken marinated in herbs and spices and cooked with Awazi sauce and mild chilli. Jollof rice, meanwhile, is just as good as biryani from Hyderabad. It also made me think of the flavorful yellow rice we prepared in our culinary class in Ubud 카지노사이트


Traditionally made with teff wheat, injera is a slightly spongy flatbread risen like sourdough. In some African nations, particularly Ethiopia, it is a staple. We learned how to eat with injera from Saba, the proprietor of our favourite Ethiopian restaurant in Fitzroy. Tear off a little piece of the injera bread, use it as a spoon to mop up the meal that is placed on top of it, then eat it with the food. Another reason why African food reminds me of South Indian food is since it’s quite similar to dosa.


We always request a side dish of berbere whenever we eat African food. African chili powder, or berbere, has an orange color and is made mostly of spices and other great ingredients. It enhances the food’s flavor and spiciness, which improves our dining experience.

Our African cuisine meal is typically concluded with a freshly brewed, traditionally roasted coffee delivered in a little cup. The coffee has a deep, rich flavor. If I plan to take a nap during the day, I don’t take it.

Listening to background music at an African restaurant is another pleasant experience. Nearly all of the African eateries here have music playing, which improves the atmosphere. In light of it, together with the unique food scent in the air, I know I am in for a treat.
