The history of southern cuisine is incomplete without understanding how West Africa influenced the cultural heritage and ingredients of America. In this episode, Chef Sean Brock travels to Senegal to meet with friend, Fatimata Ly. Together they explore the markets of Dakar and M’Bour, cook the traditional Sengalese dish Theibou Yapp, and search for the connection to American cuisines through techniques and flavors used by the locals.
