Zambian Food


Zambian food is delicious! On a good day you might have nsima, a traditional dish of cornmeal porridge, served with vegetable, meat, or fish. Zambians eat this dish with their fingers by rolling the nsima into little balls and dipping them into vegetable. You should try it! Learning sign language will give you a head start!
