Now here’s something I was amazed to find here. This is kenkey, a favorite Ghanaian dish. It’s made of fermented corn meal, shaped into balls, wrapped in banana leaves then steamed. It is usually eaten with soup or stew. Ghanaians are crazy about it.
I can’t tolerate anything bitter or sour, so just the scent of fermented corn meal was enough for me to know better than to try it. I saw it everywhere in Ghana, but I never thought I’d see it in Alexandria.
