Excerpt from Between Senegal and New York City: A Conversation with Chef Pierre Thiam (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ199…) sponsored by the Food Studies Program (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engag… ) and the Jazz and Contemporary Music Program in the College of Performing Arts (http://www.newschool.edu/jazz) at The New School.
Chef Pierre Thiam explains to the audience how traditional agricultural in Africa was altered by French colonial trade with Vietnam. Indigenous grains were replaced by sub-standard imported rice, but through decades of Africans embracing all foods and spices, « broken rice » later became the national dish of Senegal.
