(MODEL RELEASED IMAGE). In the predawn light, with little Tena bundled onto her back, Fatoumata Toure crouches in the street outside her apartment and lights a fire under the griddle she uses to cook ngome, thick pancakes made from finely pounded corn or millet flour, oil, and salt. Her house is only a minute's walk from the larger home of her co-wife Pama Kondo. Fatoumata repeats this streetside routine every day except Saturday, when she sells ngome breakfast cakes at the village market. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 211). The Natomo family of Kouakourou, Mali, is one of the thirty families featured, with a weeks' worth of food, in the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats.
