The African Gourmet

The costs for groceries especially fresh fruits and vegetables have more than doubled in the last years. 

Also, the time and labor involved in preparing fresh fruits and vegetables are more troublesome than just buying ready-made fast food. 

I hope to pass on what I have learned about African cooking in preparing healthy homemade cooked meals of meats, fruits and vegetables. 

Slowly, put the word homemade back into your weekday routine by making Goat Groundnut Stew.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.
