A Swiss, an Italian, an American, and a Kenyan cooking ugali in a Berliner kitchen.
Shabu told us that at the beginning he was not able to prepare food in our kitchen. It’s hard to get used to other cultures food habits/ systems when your culture is so different. For Cristina it was difficult to eat with her hands 😛
Some notable observations:
- The ugali is shaped into a spoon to eat the vegetables so that no utensils are required.
- A lot of water is needed to clean the pan.
- Cleaning needs to be done quickly so that the ugali doesn’t stick to the pan.
- The preparation was surprisingly quick and simple. We only needed a spoon, a pan, and a pot.
- The ugali is shared from one big dish in the center of the table.
