Food in Madagascar is about sharing, and the Malagasy love to share. Cuisine from Madagascar is delicious but uncomplicated. Basic ingredients and equipment. There is never 'nothing to eat ' as a meal can easily be rustled up from a few ingredients. Nothing gets wasted. Food is valuable and appreciated and takes up seventy percent of household incomes and meals are prepared lovingly. Food is still in natural forms and cooked over open-wood charcoal.However little food we have, we'll share it even if it's only one locust. -- Madagascar Proverb
