I believe in the power food has to bring together people from all walks of life. I believe in the healing power of good food. I also believe in the therapeutic relief food preparation can bring. And most importantly, I love the joyful moments associated with feeding people good food. Over time, I have come to realize that good food is relative. We all take pride in talking about and making food that nurtured us no matter what corner of the world we come from. It is this pride that makes us want to share a piece of ourselves with the world in hope that we will find like-minded souls. And in this era of social media, we have traveled the world and beyond while still in our geographical locations.
“The beautiful thing about cooking is it’s truly the most intense way to travel without leaving your own backyard. You can experience other cultures, other people’s memories, right at home, if only you venture to try.” –Beth Kirby
I am grateful for the community here at A Kitchen In Uganda. If it wasn’t for you awesome readers, this blog would not be where it is today. So with that in mind, I have created a hashtag #. This hashtag will be used to share dishes/recipes that you have tried or been inspired to create here on the blog. I will be compiling them from all the social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Pinterest, etc) and sharing them here on the blog in one long post every month. Doesn’t that sound awesome? I believe it is one way to connect with each other and share our kitchen experiences. So, use the # whenever you share something you have tried or been inspired to create from the blog on different social media networks! Happy cooking.
Also, it is planting season! That means anticipating good food a few month from now like this boiled maize! What are you excited to eat/ cook when the harvest season finally comes around?
