Yolélé Foods introduced its new pilaf mixes at the Winter Fancy Food Show, spotlighting fonio as an ancient grain from West Africa. As Yolélé Foods' co-founder chef Pierre Thiam describes, "Our new fonio pilaf mixes take another step forward in introducing West Africa's oldest cereal grain to tables around the world."
The fonio pilaf blends are available in varieties like Afro-Funk, Greens!, Jollof and Yassa!, all of which are inspired by popular West African dishes made with ingredients like moringa, spinach, lime, tomato and peppers.
These nutritious mixes have the potential to be used as a versatile side dish, especially in place of other popular ancient grains and even pseudocereals quinoa, amaranth or buckwheat.
