Disclaimer: this is not my recipe. This is the recipe of legendary Kwame Onwuachi, an American chef based in Washington, D.C. After trying this recipe for myself, I knew that there was no way that I’d be able to better this. I haven’t changed a thing and you shouldn’t either.
Thank you Kwame for this amazing recipe and for writing such an amazing, great, super, crazy powerful memoir. Notes from a Young Black Chef: A Memoir.
