 Angola is the second-largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world (after Brazil) and is the seventh-largest country in Africa.  There is a small part of the country that is not connected to the rest: Cabinda.  It is along the Atlantic Coast just north of the main body of the country and accounts for an estimated 60% of Angola's oil production.

For our food experience, I found a recipe for Muamba De Galinha (or Muamba Chicken), referred to in some places as Angola's national dish.  I had a lot of the ingredients already on hand or easily obtainable at my local grocery store but needed to special order red palm oil to make the dish.  It had a rich, nutty smell when heated up that added a lot to the dish, so I'm glad I made the effort to get some!

We served it over rice, and our whole family enjoyed it!
