It's tomato season in the northern hemisphere, and what a variety! When I lived in France, most of the years spent were in the region of Provence. One of my very favorite recipes was tomates à la provençale, a simple peasant tomato dish that requires fresh beefy tomatoes, a day's old baguette, green herbs that you can pick in the countryside, and pure olive oil. Put it in the oven and voilà! Coincidentally, one of my favorite authors, American food writer MFK Fisher, felt the same way about the same Provence where she lived too. Bon appétit!
Food as in any other culture, plays a big role in South Sudanese identity, prepared daily by hard working women. During my time as an aid worker, one of my favorites, red lentil soup, was served on Tuesdays each week with chapati, a type of bread. Red lentil soup has many variations across the Middle East and North Africa, but this is the one I knew and enjoyed best. - @AmandinettePaperie
