These little stock cubes, Kub Or (literally Gold Cube), have gradually worked their way into my monthly shopping list as a must. It is used in all African cooking and it seems to be vital to giving the dishes their "je ne sais quoi" taste. It's hard to describe it's flavour. My Mum likened it to a sort of curry flavour, but even that's not hitting the nail quite on the head.
It is even rumoured that the women in Cameroon put these little cubes up their derrières to give them fuller bottoms!
Now they've even brought out the Kub Or with Herbes de Provence to give them that little French twist!
A definate 5* recommendation to the adventurous palette.
