African FuFu. Fufu, an essential food in most of West Africa, was brought to the Americas by enslaved populations who adapted it to Caribbean cuisines according to what was available. There are many versions of fufu, with each West African country featuring its own favorite recipe. Fufu is a staple food in many countries in West Africa, Central Africa, and Caribbean.
Fufu, which is believed to have originated in modern-day Ghana, is commonly made by pounding starchy food crops such as cassava, yam, plantain and others with hot water. In Western and Central African cooking, fufu holds the same position as mashed potatoes do in traditional European and American cuisine. This staple dish is served with all kinds of soups, stews, and sauces, and looks like a soft, slightly elastic white purée of neutral taste.
