Ark of Taste


The Ark of Taste is a bountiful virtual catalog that gathers together food products belonging to the culture, history and traditions of the whole planet. So far, it has identified and catalogued 70 products at risk of extinction in Africa, including plant varieties, animal breeds, spices, salts and cheeses.


Some of the products are native to Africa, while others have come to the continent from elsewhere but have been a traditional part of African diets for centuries.


The knowledge linked to these products is primarily oral, so the best way to discover to learn about them is to visit the communities, talk to women and the elderly and go to local markets.
