Leaving Asia, let’s now migrate South West.
I’ve never actually been to the Middle East, but my circle of friends looks like the UN Security Council in terms of its diversity. As such, I have a lot of friends from the Middle East and having been invited to their places for family events, celebrations and other occasions, I realized how similar the food culture was with the African one: always lots of food, food that is usually very heavy (but oh so good!) and the eating just doesn’t stop! Similarly to Africans, spices are also very important in the food making process.
