GLOSSARY

Awaze Sauce Berbere Herbed and marinated spicy red chili paste. Spice mixture whose ingredients usually include chili peppers, garlic, ginger, dried basil, korarima, rue, black and white pepper, and fenugreek. Key ingredient in the cuisines of Ethiopia and Eritrea. Plant of the ginger family which are recognized by their small seed pod, triangular in cross-section and spindle-shaped, with a thin papery outer shell and small black seeds. Thistle-like plant which is a member of the Aster family. It is native to the Mediterranean, where it was domesticated in ancient times. Species of bean native to North Africa and southwest Asia and extensively cultivated elsewhere. The underground stem of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Other notable members of this plant family are turmeric, cardamom, and galangal. The characteristic odor and flavor of ginger is caused by a mixture of zingerone, shogaols and gingerols, volatile oils that compose 1-3% of the weight of fresh ginger. Seasoned clarified butter used in Ethiopian cooking. It is simmered with spices such as cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, onion, garlic and nutmeg before straining. This imparts a distinct spicy aroma to it. Yeast-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture. Traditionally made out of teff flour, it is a national dish in Ethiopia and Eritrea. A similar variant is eaten in Somalia and Yemen. Medium sized chili pepper with a warm, burning sensation when eaten. It originates in Mexico and is named after Xalapa, Veracruz, where it was traditionally cultivated. Spicy powdered seasoning used in the cuisine of Ethiopia. It is orange-red in color and contains ground African Birdseye chili peppers, cardamom seed, cloves, salt, and occasionally other spices including cinnamon, cumin, or ginger. It is used to season the raw beef dish kitfo and may also be sprinkled on fava beans or spooned onto a piece of injera so food can be lightly dipped into it. A species of lovegrass native to the northern Ethiopian highlands. It has an attractive nutrition profile, being high in dietary fiber and iron and providing protein and calcium. It has a somewhat sour taste. Plant of the ginger family which is native to tropical South Asia and needs temperatures between 70° and 85° F and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. When not used fresh, the rhizomes are boiled for several hours and then dried in hot ovens, after which they are ground into a deep orange-yellow powder commonly used as a spice. Menu 5-10-11
