  • I really loved your article!
    I grew up in Kampala and nsenene was one of my favorite delicacies that I still crave, and I earnestly think, the world should discover. It could be a perfect MRE if preserved well!
    Your rendering depicts the real essence of the nsenene season and the toll commercialization has taken on this Ugandan tradition.
    You are one of those highly gifted writers with the facility to relate a story in such exact and appropriate language that I think, will show the world the culinary side of our culture in a way that no one else has so far!
