For The Culture

Galentines present for my boo @cookingwithcannedice ๐Ÿ’• i tried so hard to keep it clean while reading and cooking from it before gifting and almost succeeded lol! This magazine is absolutely stunning with essays, interviews, recipes and glowing photos. The first issue was fully crowdfunded during quarantine and is an artifact of something truly beautiful that has come out of this terrible time. 

@hawahassan is featured for her new book #InBibisKitchen, written with @turshen 75 recipes and stories gathered from bibis (grandmothers) from eight African nations: South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Comoros, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, and Eritrea. These eight countries are the backbone of the spice trade. 

Fit fit, bits of flatbread fried with spices, is a typical dish throughout East Africa and is made with either Ethiopian injera or Eritrean kicha. Hawa said you could use any old flatbread like pita and i had some frozen from @jartsboston@eatbonapita#tasteofisraelbosalong with berber spice @elsiemanrad brought me from israel! Bathed in ghee and spice with a cool dollop of yogurt, this is so simple and addictively delicious. Another recipe from this issue i want to try- @drjessicabharris simmers a couple glugs of rum with her mint jelly to serve with leg of lamb yummmm ๐ŸŒฑ
