My travels to Senegal to study Senegalese and West African cookery with Senegal's Culinary Ambassador and Master Chef, Pierre Thiam, where definitely meant to be. I learned about the country and its people, Senegalese foodways, ...and the shopping at the open markets and the cooking sessions were the highlights for me... The Senegalese people and their vibrant and delicious food, truly won my heart! I present to you, my interpretation of the things that I learned. Food Photo Credit: Evan Sung
