Our guide to the cuisine of African countries where Spanish is the official language: Equatorial Guinea.
The roots of African cooking go back thousands of years, but African cuisine has been influenced by other nations over recent times. For example, the cuisine in Equatorial Guinea, the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa, is a blend of influences from native tribes, Spanish colonizers, and Islamic countries like Morocco. Guinea peppers, fresh fish and seafood, peanuts, avocados, and tropical fruits like papaya and pineapple… a veritable feast for visitors to Equatorial Guinea.
