According to Taste Atlas, the Cameroonian dish Ndole is the third-best casserole dish in Africa and the 47th best globally.
TasteAtlas has ranked Cameroonian dish Ndole, as the third best Casserole dish in Africa, and 47th best in the Globally.
A casserole is a kind of large, deep pan or bowl used for cooking a variety of dishes in the oven; it is also a category of foods cooked in such a vessel. To distinguish the two uses, the pan can be called a “casserole dish” or “casserole pan,” whereas the food is simply “a casserole.”
Only South Africa’s Bobotie(11th Globally), and Egypt’s Macaroni Bechamel(26th Globally) were ranked ahead of Ndole in Africa. The dish was also given a 3.2/5 Rating by Taste Atlas. The rating didn’t come as a surprise as the Cameroon cuisine is considered by many to be the best in Africa with their wide, diversified variety of dishes.

Calling Ndolé a casserole is so unhinged 😭😭😭 and for it to be so low on the list when gratin dauphinois is 7th is WILDDD. Please leave my people out of the casserole conversations moving forward. https://t.co/zAN2QC2uKf
