Exploring NYC: The United Nations of Food

In one of my favorite Ayiba Magazine interviews yet, I spoke to the creator of new blog United Nations of Food about his culinary adventures and his experiences with African cuisine (obviously a passion of mine). To date, Charles, the founder of UN of Food, has eaten cuisine from 129 of 160 countries — all in New York City!

Can you describe African food in three words?
"Hearty, honest, and underappreciated. African food is never pretentious, it’s rarely dainty, and far too few non-Africans know about it."

Read more about his project and the state of African cuisine in NYC here.
