Chef, restaurateur, and author Pierre Thiam has a passion for his homeland of Senegal, and is on a mission to introduce global audiences to the diverse and delicious cuisines of West Africa. In his latest cookbook, Senegal: Modern Senegalese Recipes from the Source to the Bowl, Thiam creates an edible travelogue that highlights the traditional and contemporary recipes from across the nation’s kitchens. Featuring insights and stories from the cooks and producers Thiam met over his journey, and vibrant dishes inspired by those encounters, Senegal presents a gastronomic glimpse into the country’s past, present, and future.
