    Favorite Dish: when ever you come across Manioka, be sure it is well cooked, like the Yam Root, it is a tuberous root, Manioka is poison in its raw stage, so it has to be prepared and cooked poperly.
    you might get invited on off your beaten path journey, ask about is a stable food in this part of the Country,called Farofa when eaten with Black Beans.
    it's also used as Laundry starch as well
    I always liked the mash of Manioka, depends what it is spiced with, can look like polenta, or semolina patties, eaten with black beans....very tasty and nutritious..for a while that is. after a longer time, people are not hungry but well undernorished
