0 Featured Cuisine: The Food of Ethiopia
I absolutely LOVE Ethiopian food!!!! So it's a good thing we happen to live in the epicenter of Ethiopian food in the USA, Washington, DC. :) We have more Ethiopian restaurants here per square inch than anywhere else in the country.
If you've never tried it before, the best way I can describe it is that it's a complex mixture of flavors unlike any other cuisine. :) Here's a good predictor: If you like Indian food, then you will probably like Ethiopian food. Both have complex flavors, & there are some similar
"spice subsets" common to both.
Below is a compendium of some popular Ethiopian recipe sites:
RecipeZaar: 80 Ethiopian Recipes
The African Cookbook: Menus & Recipes from Ethiopia
