So throughout Things Fall Apart, has anyone else been wondering what foofoo is? I certainly have! I found that it is a starchy, dough-like food that is a staple, especially in West and Central Africa. It comes from Ghana, and is often eaten with soups(like palm nut soup or tomato soup). It is made by boiling starchy vegetables and then pounding them until they’re become very doughy, and it’s eaten by breaking a small piece off and dipping it into the accompanying soup or dip. Hope this answered some questions for some people, because I was dying to know more about their food! (Yeah, I go to Westridge.)
