In this landmark cookbook, chef Pierre Thiam, author of Senegal and Yolele, celebrates fonio, an ancient “miracle grain” of his childhood that he believes could change the world. Grown for centuries in Africa, fonio is not only nutritious and gluten-free, but also as easy to cook as rice and quinoa. The Fonio Cookbook is full of simple recipes for the home cook, with both traditional West African dishes such as Fonio Fritters with Sweet Potato and modern creations like Tamarind Roasted Chicken with Fonio and Fonio Seafood Paella.
