#348 Trofai

When I was in France I happened upon a little grocery shop that was run by a nice lady from . . . Mali, I think. I was after some Red Palm Oil but she persuaded me to try this can of Trofai Palm Concentrate. Apparently it's the 'bees knees' for West African stews and soups and absolutely essential in a Nigerian soup called Banga. (I had to smile 'cos this was my boy Jay's first personal swear word - Oh Banga!)

I used the concentrate when making my Captain's Chicken Curry (link) and it was excellent. Trouble is, I can't buy any down here in Denia, might find some in Barcelona or have to end up e.buying from somewhere like Lagos. If you see any in your local corner shop, please let me know.
