Ugali and cabbage revisited

Ugali and cabbage

My photo of home-cooked maize meal with cabbage and carrots which now appears on the Ugali page in Wikipedia

A while back I posted an entry here about home-cooked Kenyan maize dish called Ugali and how this had given me a sense of connection with my time in Kenya. Well today I’m celebrating the fact that this photo (which I published on Flickr under a Creative Commons licence that allows it to be reused as long as I am credited as author) has found its way onto the Wikipedia entry for Ugali!

In case you want to know more about this stuff, including how to make it, I once blogged the recipe as a flowchart.

    Hah, congratulations. I think this is only something a computer nerd would appreciate. I just confirmed that the Wikipedia article lists your name as the credit for the photo. You are now a celebrity… of some sort. Haha!

    I haven’t been cooking ugali much lately… sukuma wiki either. I have been eating a lot of lentil curries and jeera rice, compliments of my new pressure cooker and big wok-type pan. I’ll be here in Kenya until October 2009, by the way. I’m approaching one year already, it’s hard to believe.

    Take care,
