THE RILEY/LAND COLLECTION
I'm going to be completely honest here. I kept seeing these little jars with the cute fabric tied around the lid. The labels were beautiful and the entire vibe of the products came across as authentic and true. I rarely buy something without tasting it, but said, "let me get these for my Mystery Box people. I'll try them once they get here." To be clear; I simply don't do that. Anyway, I tasted the Ginger Lemongrass at the warehouse one night, as I was putting it in a box and was blown away! THE FLAVOR!!!! I quickly called and ordered more. To that, I added this sauce for 2 reasons: 1. I am already a fan of her work and 2. it has yams in it. lol... That's right. I was sold.
And I was right. This is about to be a new favorite pantry staple. Coconut milk, yams, mire poix, and finished with balsamic vinegar - I'm hungry just typing those words. This is a mld sauce.
8 oz. jar
ABOUT THE MAKER:
Nafissatou Camara was born in France and started cooking, using classic French techniques, at a very early age under her mother's guidance. In her teens, she sought our her father and went to live with him in Senegal, where she and her grandmother (and namesake) the two quickly became best friends. Nafissantou was delighted by the new aromas and spices she had never known existed. Says Nafissatou, "This time spent with Mama Nafi was often silent, rhythm by the sound of the cooking tools, the pilon, the coal cracking, focused, powerful, as she was conscientiously transferring her precious knowledge and blessings to the child I still was. I was staring at her every graceful gesture, and her happy smile."
