Today's recipe comes direct from Afrika, from the Ital Zambians, a group of Rastafari promoting Ital foods and culture in Zambia. Their focus is to build and strengthen the Zambian Ital Community through gardening, farming and preserving the knowledge and use of indigenous foods.
Anna, the communications specialist for Ital Zambians says it best:
"The Ital Zambians initiative was created by the Zambian RasTafarI community in an effort to create stronger links with Italists locally and globally. Our mission is unity.
Locally, I and I strive to take Zambian Italists out of their isolation and alienation by creating supportive networks where ones may easily access good food and good company.
Globally, I and I aim to share the beauty of Africa with world RasTafarI. We hope to shatter prejudices and erase the stigma cast on the motherland so that Africans in the Diaspora may have a clearer picture of the homeland. We also aim to facilitate visits and repatriations for those who are ready to return home.
Our goal is to serve the well-being of all African peoples locally and globally.
Our deepest intention is to see all Africans prospering and self-actualising."
Ital Zambians is sharing their Simple Sorghum Recipe which is "perfect food for athletic people with active, outdoorsy lifestyles."
