Ethiopian FoodCharacteristically consists of spicy vegetable, meat or chicken dishes, usually in the form of wot, a thick stew, served atop injera, a large sourdough flat bread which is about 14 inches in diameter and made out of fermented wheat and grass like grain called teff flour. Teff is the tiniest grain in the world and is gluten-free. Injera is not only a kind of bread it’s also an eating utensil. In Ethiopia and Eritrea, this spongy sour flatbread is used to scoop up meat and vegetable stews. Injera also lines the tray on which the stews are served, soaking up their juices as the meal progresses.
TEJ Honey WineTej is a national drink of Ethiopia. It is a golden sweet honey-wine made from fermented honey and a special kind of hope called Gesho. It is similar to mead. When glasses are filled with Tej, they contain the same golden drink that was enjoyed by Queen of Sheba and King Solomon in 950 BC.
