Eritrean Cuisine with Rawa
My name is Rawa, I’m from Eritrea. I feel lucky to be in the UK. But it’s also hard because I’m still waiting for my asylum decision from the Home Office. I started learning to cook when I was 7 years old – in my culture they believe it’s important for women to learn to cook from a young age. I have a real passion for cooking and presenting things nicely and getting the perfect taste. I joined Migrateful because it is a really nice opportunity for me to share my traditional food with the community. Eritrean cuisine is a fusion of Eritrea’s native culinary traditions and social interchanges with other regions. It shares similarities with the cuisines from other countries in the horn of Africa, especially Ethiopia.
