Today, a South African pie from chef Marcus Samuelsson, who recently published a memoir, called Yes, Chef. (You can hear Evan’s interview with him about his memoir here.) His Bobotie Pie recipe comes from his 2006 cookbook, The Soul of a New Cuisine: A Discovery of the Foods and Flavors of Africa.

Samuelsson says that Bobotie Pie is like a casserole, usually eaten on Sunday afternoons. Some people add almonds to it. Samuelsson recommends serving it with mango sambal and creamed Swiss chard.
