If you want to know about secrete meals that exist around the country, ask tourist. These guys go to where ever the like and eat whatever the country has to offer as food. Should we say is because their systems where designed to take in anything? Or that there are special humans? This is just to say that; you can eat whatever so long as your system accepts and for those who haven’t been restricted by doctors. 

For women who can’t cook in Africa, it is already normal for them to at times receive abuses from their husband. I don’t know about the western world and how they handle their own issues about the woman not cooking, but here in Africa, a woman who cooks well is likely to get married and have a peaceful marriage than a beautiful woman who doesn’t know how to cook. 

Cooking mustn’t be only with one or a particular cooking style. There are however many style and different strategies in which people use to come up with a particular cuisine. This doesn’t change that particular cuisine’s name, instead it may boost the spicy nature and taste of the cuisine.
