Good news arrived in my inbox this morning: a link to download of one of the most useful tools for toubabs cooking in West Africa. And of course, I had to share it on Dakar Eats.
The section on Tropical Tips is just plain awesome. Need a recipe for homemade roach killer using sweetened condensed milk and boric acid? Or have you been wanting to start an herb garden, but not sure what will grow well in this climate? It’s all here!
