Poulet DG (Poulet Directeur Général)

At the risk of generalizing, it seems that Africans possess a talent for finding just the right nickname for a thing. This fricassee of chicken, vegetables, and savory spices is called Poulet DG, pronounced the French way, "day-zjay", bien sûr! Poulet DG, a favorite restaurant dish among the movers and shakers (les grands types) of Cameroon, is Poulet Directeur Général: poulet (chicken) for le Directeur Général (the big boss). Bon appétit.

chef traditionnel, cameroon
