Botswanan Bogobe

Botswanan Bogobe

Share

Botswanan Bogobe – also called “slap-pap” – is a Botswanan national favorite mealtime staple. The word roughly translates to “stiff porridge” and slap-pap is just that – stiff, and rather mild tasting. But it is nevertheless a remarkably tasty accompaniment to main entrees. Bogobe serves as a lighter taste and varying texture to go along with the meats, soups, stews, and vegetable dishes found in Botswana cuisine.

Its full name is “Bogobe jwa lerotse”, and it has a marvelously subtle flavor provided by the lerotse melon ingredient.
Lerotse melon appears almost identical as the common watermelon, but it has orange flesh, and is not at all sweet. Eaten raw, the taste is reminiscent of cucumber. However, when cooked, it gives the bogobe its unmistakably unique flavor.

Botswanan Bogobe is traditionally often served with a very tasty meat dish called Seswaa.

There is some confusion about “Central America” and “Latin America”. They are not the same thing. Central America is a geographical region, whereas Latin America refers to a cultural entity. Latin America refers to countries – many in the same region as Central America – where a Latin-rooted language is spoken. Spanish, French, and Portuguese are prime examples. So, for the sake of clarity, the new pages we have launched are representative of Central American cuisines – not Latin American, per se.
