African meal report ~Part.1: Zambia ~

It is very important to understand what is being eaten locally in understanding local overseas.
It depends on what you are eating, because you can see various things such as the lives of local people, agricultural circumstances, development of industries such as processed foods.
For the first time, we will report on the meals in Zambia located in southern Africa.
This is the traditional set meal of Zambia.

In Africa, we generally use the right hand for meals.
Even if you use a knife and a fork, you can eat it, but you can eat it by hand more efficiently.
Well, let me introduce the dishes.
First, let’s pick up Nshima.
This is a staple food in Zambia.
For making it, pour white corn(Mays) powder little by little into hot water, stir it.
Main dish is Chicken.
Zambian chicken is soft and tasty.
Below is the source of chicken or chicken
・Chopsticks of spinach named “Fissashi”
・Okra(in Orenge-colored bowl)
It is quite difficult to eat this okra sauce, cooked with sima.
It is a habit to crush an okra sauce and crush okra sauce like a spoon by crushing a finger.
Drink is a domestic beer of kiriri and cold Zambia Mosi.
It is light taste.
Here is a freshwater fish which is eaten throughout Africa, Muniel of Nile perch.

It has no smell, it has a pale white flavor, it fits the mouth of a Japanese fisherman who likes white fish.
This is a Zambian brand beef, a steak of Zambeef.
You can enjoy the umami of the meat itself, soft though it has less fat.

This is about 1200 yen with a salad bar that you can enjoy with steak on buffet style.
Eating a delicious stake at dinner in this price was very attractive.
This is the average lunch that can be eaten at a popular restaurant in the city.

Cabbage salad, chips, fried chicken one plate.
Around 300 to 400 yen.
On the way, the grilled Mays is sold for about 50 yen.


Compared with Japanese maize, there is no sweetness.
It is a bit hard, so it takes a lot of energy to finish eating one.
This pointed out a part of the Zambian food situation.
I also want to look at the foods of other countries in Africa, touched upon.
