  6. 'A tasty Cameroonian dish, usually cooked with meat or possibly fish (dry shrimps go well). At a certain stage during its preparation, the people who own the dish generally toss the cooked plantains in a bowl with some palm oil.
  7. It is this action of mixing the two together by tossing them up that is known as sese - hence the name Sese Plantain. Although this method is not commonly used now, the dish still bears the name. When I tried to toss the plantains, they ended up on the floor - so be warned.'
