Kpwem (Feuilles de Manioc)

Kpwem (Kpem, Kwem, Pkuem) a soup, sauce, or purée de manioc from Southern Cameroon is Cameroon's entry on the Central African menu of dishes made from greens, peanuts, and palm oil. Kpwem is made from feuilles de manioc (cassava, or manioc, leaves). Young, tender leaves, from the most recent growth of the plant, are the most desirable. Feuilles de manioc are available in markets all over tropical Central Africa, and are even exported to Europe and America where they are sold in African groceries and served in African restaurants.

The multiple (but similar) names by which kpwem is known are a result of Cameroon's many languages and the irregular application of the Latin alphabet by German, French, and British colonial authorities.
