Every stroll through this city shrouded in tropical heat is interrupted by open-air food centers, coffee shops and restaurants vying for your stomach’s attention.

The impressions of that meal lasted longer than the young woman in question. Ethiopia has been in the news recently, having successfully achieved a peace agreement with neighboring Eritrea, with which it had been in a conflict for two decades. The countries have opened embassies in each other’s capitals, and air travel has been restored. What better time, then, to take a look at Ethiopian cuisine? The food that first thrilled me more than 30 years ago is as … [Read more...] about Iconic Ethiopian food leaves an impression
