While pasta is a familiar staple in many American households, most African dishes haven’t made that leap. Lots of people have never even seen, let alone tasted, <em>fu fu</em> or <em>egusi </em>soup. Yet many foods eaten in the U.S. and around the globe have been influenced by African cooking.</p><p>As part of the occasional series <em><a href="http://www.wbez.org/foodmondays" target="_blank"><em>Food Mondays</em></a></em>, <em>Worldview </em>speaks with James McCann, the author of <em><a href="http://www.ohioswallow.com/book/stirring+the+pot" target="_blank">Stirring the Pot: A History of African Cuisine</a></em>, who says many of the staples considered traditionally African, didn’t actually originate in Africa.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p></p> Mon, 12 Dec 2011 17:56:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-12-12/africa-has-rich-food-history-many-don%E2%80%99t-know-about-94831 Worldview 12.12.11 http://www.wbez.org/episode/worldview-121211 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//episode/images/2011-december/2011-12-12/africa1.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>Tens of thousands of people filled Moscow's streets on Saturday to protest last week's parliamentary elections, which were widely seen as fraudulent in favor Vladimir Putin's United Russia party. We examine the protest's repercussions. Also, many ingredients used in African cooking didn’t actually originate in Africa – even items like <em>cassava</em>, which we normally think of as traditionally “African.” Today, as part of our <a href="http://www.wbez.org/foodmondays" target="_blank"><em>Food Mondays</em></a> series, we talk with James McCann, author of <a href="http://www.ohioswallow.com/book/stirring+the+pot" target="_blank"><em>Stirring the Post:&nbsp; A History of African Cuisine</em></a>. In his book, James uses African cooking as a lens to examine the continent’s multi-faceted social history and culture. And African immigrants tell us about the foods they miss most and how they attempt to recreate those dishes here in Chicago.</p></p> Mon, 12 Dec 2011 15:32:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode/worldview-121211
