In this Nov. 24, 2018 photo, Chef Touty Sarr scrapes the scales off a red snapper to boil in the savory broth of thiebou dieune, a traditional Senegalese dish of spiced rice, inside a kitchen in Ngaparou, Senegal.  After finding no reliable recipes online for Ghanaian dishes - and no photos that made the beloved food of her childhood look appetizing - Tuleka Prah started My African Food Map. She uses the blog to celebrate the cuisines of a continent often marred by negative stereotypes. The aim is to present food "how people who love it would prepare it." And she's not alone, as others explore the cuisines of the continent and its diaspora for a global audience.
