The Warm Belly Kitchen had some special cooks prepare lunch at the Kapuskasing Indian Friendship Centre yesterday. Universite de Hearst students from Senegal prepared their traditional Rice and Chicken dish. Marie-Rose Kane, coordinator of Settlement Services and who is from Senegal says the students were so grateful to the Warm Belly Kitchen to share their culture.
“That’s a nice experience because is help other people to understand what we eat in Senegal, to taste it and appreciate it,” she said.
Kane says the dish really reminded them of home.
“There were green, red and yellow peppers, we put a lot of Cayenne Pepper, salt,” she said. “It’s a little bit spicy but today we try to not make it like that so we could accommodate everyone.”
