Anyone who has been to Uganda will know that matooke (big green bananas that you have to cook) is one of the favourite dishes. There is a particular way to peel, prepare and cook it, and it is generally the ladies job to do the preparing. I have been allowed to help in the cooking process before, but there is normally some level of surprise that a mzungu (white man/lady) can manage this particular task. It is a bit of a treat so we don't generally have it here with the IYs...and its also a bit of a fiddle to prepare! Cathie was my teacher/instructor on this occasion.
