I am going to be doing a culinary tour of those countries that few people know of in Africa, the Portuguese-speaking ones (most people know of the Swahili-speaking countries in East Africa, the Francophone countries of North, Central and West Africa and the Anglophone countries of West, East and Southern Africa.
But there are a number of countries colonized by the Portuguese that still use Portuguese as a main language. These countries are:
Guinea-Bissau, São Tome and Principé, Angola, Mozambique and the Comoros Islands.
Today's recipe is a classic peanut and chicken stew from Guinea-Bissau in West Africa.
Caldo de Mancarra (Chicken in Peanut Sauce)
