Congolese Cooking – Finally!

Ever since I started writing about the Congolese-American immigrant experience in January, I’ve been on the lookout for a good food story – nothing captures the spirit of a culture like good cooking.

So I was happy to stumble across an article in the Portland Phoenix about Yarmouth’s Ariane Kambu Mbenza and her gaufres, bite-sized cookies made on a waffle iron.

Read the original article on the Portland Phoenix’s website and get Mbenza’s recipe at
