São Tomé is part of the small archipelagic African nation Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, located in the Gulf of New Guinea. The traditional cuisine blends the influence of the Portuguese settlers and the African slaves and typically uses fresh seafood, chicken, tropical fruits, spices and salami. 

Fish Calulu is a dish comprising grouper and prawns slow-cooked with eggplant, tomatoes, okra and malaguetta chili, served with a porridge called banana pap. Popular snacks include bread rolls stuffed with Portuguese sausages and salami. Canjica is a dessert made with crushed green maize cooked slowly with eggs, cinnamon and sugar.—Leska Tomash
