Harambee USA hosted an evening of tasty Senegalese cooking at Alderton house, NYC, on April 27. Fifteen people dined on Fataya (fried dough with fish filling) appetizers and freshly prepared Thibou Ginaar (stewed chicken and rice) prepared by volunteer cook, Amie, who regaled the guests with anecdotes of her early life in Senegal. Her audience laughed when she said that her American-born sons preferred macaroni-and-cheese over her authentic dishes! Every bit of food at the dinner disappeared. The event is part of Harambee's mission of raising awareness of the rich African culture in the US.
