    Thank you for your comment, Dora. It is certainly difficult to fine information regarding cooking and food in Sierra Leone. We do have a few suggestions and will be in touch soon to share them. Most are included on our bibliography so do take a look. Please look out for a message from info[AT]rootscuisine[DOT]org. Thank you.
