My Family Recipe
The Curry That Reunited My Family with Nyanyika Banda
Nyanyika Banda has a passion for studying the foodways of the African diaspora. Growing up surrounded with the culinary traditions of her father’s Malawian culture, she has had a lifelong hunger for exploration. In April 2020, she published an installment of My Family Recipe titled "The Chicken Curry That Put My Broken Family Back Together Again." It's about building traditions and finding forgiveness through a childhood recipe.
If you’re hungry for more of this story, you can read Nyanyika Banda’s original essay “The Chicken Curry That Put My Broken Family Back Together Again,” published by Food52.
My Family Recipe is created by the Food52 Podcast Network and Heritage Radio Network, inspired by the eponymous Food52 column.
