Cameroons dining etiquette is very different than the dining etiquette here. One etiquette rule is taste all the food that is presented. Another rule is as the guest don't bring a gift that is food. Here in the USA we don't follow the same etiquette rules as Cameroon. For example we don't have to eat all the food presented on the table. Another reason is we can bring a gift and it can be food like a side dish or desert.
