If you are interested in Ethiopian culture and religion, celebrations like Timket and the Enkukatash Ethiopian New Year Festival are great times to visit. Ethiopian New Year takes place in September, and the festival involves street processions and candlelit vigils, with dancing performances and singing from the local children. Meanwhile, Timket is held annually in January and is a vibrant celebration that marks John’s the Baptist’s baptism in the Jordan River. During the festival, villages and towns create models of the Ark of the Covenant, which are paraded through the streets. The festival is primarily a Christian celebration but is still a beautiful example of Ethiopian culture and a unique sight for visitors of any faith.
Ethiopian cuisine is healthy and delicious. One of the most foundational ingredients in Ethiopian cooking is Injera, a type of flatbread made from Teff flour. Teff grain is gluten-free and is turned into a fermented paste before being used to make Injera. Injera is often served with vegetarian sauces and curries, as many Ethiopian recipes are meat-free. One popular dish in southern Ethiopia is a starch-based dish called Kocho. This is a fermented flatbread similar to Injera, except that it is made with banana leaves rather than Teff flour. Kocho is usually served with roasted greens, known as Kifto, for a filling and nutritious meal. Restaurants in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, also serve popular traditional meat dishes, such as Tibs or Tere Siga. Tibs refers to sliced meat, usually beef or lamb, fried in butter with garlic and onion. Meanwhile, Tere Siga dishes usually consist of raw beef cut into cubes and served alongside Injera and with a variety of spicy condiments on the side.
