The cooking utensils are handmade and also quite interesting and unique, such as wooden fruit bowls, spoons, Grinders, mixing bowls and many more. Apart of the contemporary and International Cooking Apparatus the Africans widely use the banana leaves for bean cakes, that acts as a seasoning agent and add a distinctive earthy flavor.
