Aurora's Ethiopian community celebrates "culture of sharing"
Source: Denver Post
AURORA — A thousand pancakes weren't nearly enough, not for the hundreds of people who waited in a long, winding line during the opening two hours of the first Taste of Ethiopia Grand Festival Sunday in Aurora.
"We're going to have to order more," said an ebullient chief cook Sophia Belew of the whole wheat flatbread Ethiopians call injera, which is both bread and utensil to gobble gastric delights such as gomenand wot.
Belew oversaw 14 people from the festival's native land who cooked up a pile of food Saturday and served it Sunday to thousands of people of several races and cultural backgrounds.
The Denver metro area is home to at least 17 Ethiopian restaurants, according to Ethiopian community organizers, but Sunday's event had an edge on the competition, in Belew's opinion.
HABESHA ALWAYS SHOW UP FOR FOOD AND DANCE (CHIFERA).
ORGANIZE $5 DONATION TO DIG CLEAN WATER WELLS, AND ONLY TWO PEOPLE SHOW UP.
