Last month, we explored two traditional Guatemalan dishes that opened our eyes to the flavors of a country we have never been to, but feel slightly more connected to now that we’ve eaten something so simply delicious. Every month, our challenge is to find yet another cuisine that confounds us and make it less intimidating–not only for ourselves, but for others. We’ve bounced around to different continents, and this time we’re returning to a place we’ve been. Unlike the first time, we’re exploring the southern portion as opposed to the western coast. Back in March, we slurped down a Ghanian stew with fufu and snacked on sweet pan-fried plantains. This time, we took a culinary food trip to Zimbabwe, which of course has its own signature dishes, ingredients and preparations. As many of us know, one of the best ways to begin to get to know any new culture is through its food. That’s exactly where we’ll start. This time, we’re sharing the adventure with loyal readers and a few new friends. Venture over to the Hills of Africa’s travel blog, Live the Magic of Africa, to read the rest of this post.
