Its cuisine varies from the Arabic influences of North Africa to the native foods of Central and West Africa and the foods of East Africa which are influenced by Arabic and Indian influences.

Countries (most notably in West Africa) which were French colonies have a distinct French flavour to their foods whilst countries (most notably in East Africa) which were British colonies have a British flavour to their foods.

Due to the slave trade Africa is also the spiritual home of many Cajun and Creole dishes of Louisiana and also many recipes of Brazil.
