In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. This episode is about the dishes of Africa. Recipes include Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk from Kenya, Baked Curried Fish -- also from Kenya, Couscous from Nigeria, and Biafran Stew. Smith not only cooks, but also discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge into the kitchen.
