Ethiopia, Food, and Culture
Unlike Western culture, Ethiopians place importance on communal dining traditions. Diners eat from a common platter, and the breaking of bread together takes on a strong social significance, for it is considered essential to maintaining loyal bonds and friendship.
An example of this is the custom of Gursha, Gursha meaning "mouthful" and refers to placing food in another's mouth, usually as a gesture of friendship and/or affection. Gursha is exchanged between relatives and friends.
Ethiopian cuisine is very unique and any dish would be incomplete without the addition of special spices that give each dish its flavor. Mitmita and Berbere are two kinds of spice mixtures used in Ethiopian cooking.
The main staple of foods for most Ethiopians are Injera and Wot. Wot is a stew that usually contains a pepper mixture and can be prepared from meats, vegetables, or fish. Injera is a an unleavened bread with a spongy texture, made from Teff, a grain comparable to wheat, which is grown in Ethiopia. A piece of Injera is wrapped around a bite of food and placed into mouth with fingers.
