Kenke, Ghana

4 of 12

It may
sound innocent enough—fermented, partially cooked cornmeal—but kenke is
one of the planet’s most pungent foods. Ground corn is soaked in water, then
allowed to ferment for three days. The kernels are then partially cooked,
wrapped in banana leaves, and steamed until they reach the consistency of warm,
mushy polenta. Kenke is usually served with a stew of crushed tomatoes
and pepper.
