Journal 4 from Lali

At Sierra Leone The food culture is deep and very rich its nickname is "sweet salone." Most of the food served at Sierra Leone are very spicy and use a lot of maggi which is stock cubes high in salt. Stews are one of the biggest dishes of Sierra Leone, groundnut stew has been called the country's national dish it has chicken and vegetables that are flavored with ground nuts which are cashews and peanuts, this dish is often served to families as a large meal. One of their famous ingredients that they use is cassava leaves which they either mix or put on everything like onions, pepper, fish, meat, and vegetables. One of their most famous beverage is the ginger beer which is a home-made non-alcoholic drink that is made purely out of ginger but they add a little bit of sugar to sweeten the taste. The only one negative thing about eating out in Sierra Leone is that some places have poor hygiene practices and this could cause some upset stomachs.

  7. Minus the poor hygiene practices in some parts of Sierra Leone, perhaps I ought to try some of this someday. After all, it does look pretty tasty. Nice explanation.
