the Gari

Gari is a staple food very common in many countries, Benign (he would be born), Cameroon, Togo, Ghana …. It is prepared from the root of the cassava. It's tedious work with many stages of realization spread over 3 days about.

The pulp of the cassava is peeled crushed, fermented, Pressed, dehydrated and dried to fire and finally subdued.

It is a process that approximates that of the Ivorian attiéké with specificities however for one and one recipe.

The attiéké (which will be the subject of other articles) is an Ivorian specialty. This is a steamed manioc. This meal also was obtained after several stages of starch processing spanning two to three days (peeling, grinding, fermentation, pressing, granulation, drying, vannage-tamisage, baking).

Like all cassava products, the gari, Tapioca called in Cameroon (different Asian Tapioca, thicker gelatinous) is naturally gluten free.

Gari and all the cassava products can be used by people with celiac disease in lieu of gluten-containing flours.

It can be eaten as salty sweet, lends itself to many uses and preparations. (One day, One day …)

For my part, I've always known gari indeed, both sweet that’ in salty, therefore, as a staple of our Cameroonian gastronomy. He was, and continues to be part of conventional, as well as food fast in extra sweet, that as a major events flagship dish (weddings, death, baptisms, celebrations of all kinds…) in my home region, the coast of the country of my soul.
