It’s impossible to finish this meal. I feel as though I’ve eaten a lot, but a cursory glance at our large, still-full tray of injera, Ethiopia’s staple food, suggests otherwise. The food has barely diminished. To avoid causing offense, the hosts have been informed this is not an indication of customer dissatisfaction. My insightful guide today is Xavier Curtis, who grew up in Washington, D.C. and became actively involved in the Slow Food movement while studying at the University of Wisconsin. Curtis is the co-founder of two-year-old AddisEats, a walking food tour company. “The owner’s wife used to ask me, ‘What’s wrong with our food?’” he tells me. “Now they know tourists just can’t finish it.” It is a scenario that stands in contrast to many people’s thoughts when the words Ethiopia and food are uttered in the same sentence. Most will recall the famine of the 1980s, when widespread starvation shook the conscience of the world. While democracy remains a distant dream here and poverty is pervasive, food is no longer the scarce necessity it once was.Read more
