Recently in french class, we have been researching about the food in Côte d’Ivoire.
There are many cultural foods and food productions in Côte d’Ivoire. Many of them include cacao production, banana production, coffee production and more. These foods are used to cook cultural and traditional food and they are also exported to other countries such as cacao which is needed to make chocolate. The most famous Côte d’Ivoire’s traditional food is “Ivorian cuisine”, which is based on tubers, grains, pork, chicken, seafood, fish, fruits, vegetables and spices.
This is the recipe for Ivorian Cuisine (Chicken)
Some of the diet is healthy, and some are not. For example, the Ivorian Cuisine include the vegetables and meat which is a very good balance. But on the other hand, the other traditional food such as the Alloco which are fried bananas, are not that healthy for the human body. I think Côte d’Ivoire was influenced and has adopted the french way of eating food. They use knives, forks and spoons but in the neighbor countries of Côte d’Ivoire, the way of eating food is different. I think it is very important to care of what you eat and what you put in your body to be healthy and fit. This is because, food you eat make your body. So it all really depends on what kind of food you eat whether it’s a McDonald’s big mac or organic fruits and vegetables. I believe that you should pay close attention to what you put in your body and always check the ingredients if you are willing to stay healthy and fit.
