I consider it a great honor that when Africana, the only West African restaurant in Madison, opened up in June, they decided to move in just a few blocks away from our apartment. Grateful indeed for the maffe (peanut sauce) and teranga (hospitality).
I recently interviewed the owner, Yul Ouattara, for an upcoming article in ForteMadison.com. I still think I am the luckiest person – I get paid to interview inspiring people and then share what I learned. Case in point.
Here is Yul (far left) with Zeba, Lucy, and Axel.
