Wagasi is a type of Beninese cheese made from cow's milk. It is a speciality of northern Benin in Africa and is commonly made by the Fulani people. It is sold in abundance in Parakou, a city in central Benin.
It is relatively soft in texture and mild in flavor and is frequently used in cooking. As with many proteins and animal products used in Beninese foods, wagasi tends to be cooked and served in a sauce which is then eaten with a starch, such as pounded yams or pâté.
