In recognition of World Food Night, which is being held next Friday, this week’s travel snap is of a delicious bowl of fish benechin that I helped prepare in The Gambia.

You can find a recipe for this spicy traditional dish on World Food Night’s website under ‘News’ from a great new Gambian cook book that I will shortly be reviewing. Next weekend I’ll be hosting a Gambian feast for WFN with recipes from this book and my friends will be picking out their favourite dishes.

Levi Roots, who I interviewed in my last post, is a great fan of WFN which is being promoted by the UK charity Refugee Action. Like him I think it’s a wonderful way to spend time with friends, discovering food from around the world and supporting those of have had to flee their homeland and start a new life in a foreign land. So why not join me and cook-up an international feast, invite a few friends round and support Refugee Action?
