gboma dessi and akoume 2

Togo: Gboma Dessi and Akoumé

Until today, I have to say that I had not been impressed by West African cuisine just yet. Of course, I enjoyed the bejus from Nigeria or chicken nyembwe from Gabon but I would not say they were gastronomic orgasms.

Tonight, we finally ate a dish from West Africa that delighted our taste buds. Not only did I enjoy the meal but my wife Anne (the pickiest in the family) did too.

The dish I decided to prepare this evening is a traditional dish from Togo, one of the smallest countries in Africa, a former French colony. Gboma dessi is really a sauce. It is also called “sauce feuille” in reference to the spinach leaves (feuilles in French). Once prepared, the sauce can be served with meat, shrimp, crab or smoked fish.

For my version of gboma dessi, I chose beef, especially beef cheek. You can choose the piece of meat gboma tolightboiny52">
