WEST AFRICAN HOLY TRINITY OF SPICES
West African foods and flavors have influenced cuisines around the globe including Southern US and Caribbean cuisines. When it comes to West African flavors, the distinguishing feature is spicy heat, and bold flavors.
While the Creoles and Cajuns have the holy trinity of bell pepper, celery, and onion, West Africans have the trio of chili pepper, ginger, and an allium; onion and/or garlic. Often supplemented with salt, indigenous spices and herbs, this mix serves as a seasoning base for cooking savory dishes. However, little is known about this blend in the United States.
