A Year Cooking in Senegal
A recipe blog about taking my well-worn chef's knife to a new continent with a whole new world of flavors and ingredients to play with. It is about hibiscus flowers and fresh tuna bought off a wooden table on the beach. It is about the fiery local ginger, the intensely sour maad, and sandy peanuts in little plastic bags. And it is about missing a place I came to think of as home.

I'm enjoying reading how you are melding the local ingredients with recipes that aren't so foreign to the normal cook.

Normally, I'm a fan of food photos on recipe blogs, but the photo headers you have before each recipe are really lovely.

Now where can I buy some bissap?

Thanks! I do wish I had gotten more photos of the food. Maybe next time.

You can often find bissap in Mexican grocery stores under the name "jamaica" or "flor de jamaica".
