Saturday at home with Chic African Culture and The African Gourmet in Palm Beach Florida
Who is Chic African Culture and The African Gourmet
Chic African Culture is the brainchild of Ivy Newton a graduate of Florida A & M University in Tallahassee Florida. Ms. Newton’s family history has tentacles on two different continents, Africa and America.
The African country of Mozambique in Southeast Africa is her country of origin, specifically from the tourist and fishing port town of Porto Amelia now known as Pemba. Her family's occupation is that of fishing, fishing in the Mozambique Channel is the lifeblood of the family.
Many of The African Gourmet, cooking and recipe division of Chic African Culture, recipes derive from Mozambique with limitless seafood recipes. Many recipes from The African Gourmet gleam directly from family and friends still living in Mozambique and every African country.
Why are we here?
Since its founding in 2008, Chic African Culture and The African Gourmet goal is to highlight Africa through her food and culture. The objective is to show true facts about Africa and its 54 vastly diverse troubled yet intensely uplifting countries with the hopes of inspiring old and new souls.
Africa is inspirational and has much more to more than just poverty porn, war, and immigrants. We are here making our mark in the respective field of truth about Africa because Africa is worthy of respect and love. Images of Africa and African people in the media tend to be quite negative; while no place on earth is 100 percent positive, no place is 100 percent negative.
Africa is home to more unknown history than known. A map of Africa does not begin to show the vastness of people, culture, food, the living and ancient history of the African continent. Established 2008 Chic African Culture is a learning tool to meet the demand for better education about the entire continent of Africa.
