World Recipe Exchange: Cameroonian Coffee
In the build up to Africa Day in Limerick, we are teaming up with the African Irish Association and Doras Luimní for an evening of Cameroonian coffee and doughnuts.
The coffee plant originates from Africa and is one of the most important crops cultivated in Cameroon. Cameroon is famous for both robusta and arabica varieties. Robusta beans produce a strong, full-bodied coffee with a distinctive earthy flavour, while arabica has a smoother taste and higher caffeine content.
There will be coffee. There will be doughnuts. There will be music and a celebration of African culture. Join us! Admission is free and all are welcome.
About World Recipe Exchange:
World Recipe Exchange is a programme of food events based at Ormston House. We bring people together to explore the international culinary heritage of Limerick and to create meeting spaces for people of all cultures. As we cook, taste and share food, we are also creating a database of recipes that originate from all corners of the world but are nowadays cooked side by side in the kitchens of our city.
Why food? Eating and celebrating is a great way to bring people together. Culinary rituals go far beyond mere food consumption: they accompany the most important events of our lives and foster the culture of sharing and generosity. Food is an important element of our identities and a significant aspect of belonging and feeling at home. This project highlights such qualities of culinary traditions and how our cooking traditions continue and change in new contexts.
