As I approach the end of this virtual journey, I’m revisiting some of the recipes I liked at the start of this journey.
For starters though, I made some Ginger Beer from Sierra Leone. Which should be non alcoholic but I doctored it up into a Sierra Leone-Barbados fusion rum punch.
Then I once again made the chicken stew with ginger-turmeric rice, and some sweet potatoes with ras el hanout.
Mom and Dad enjoyed it (though Dad is not a fan of sweet potatoes in general and this was no exception). Still it was a hit and Dad assured me he would have this again. Though maybe he’d leave the sweet potatoes for mom.
For dessert I made another batch of Algerian stuffed dates and a new approach to a cookie that was very loosely based on the Kaak Warka I made for Tunisia.
All in all it was a nice meal, shared happily with family. And pulling in all these past recipes felt like a nice celebration of the challenge as a whole.
Which is almost but not quite finished….
