Jollof rice is one of the most popular dishes in West Africa. Marcus tries some Nigerian jollof rice at Wazobia Market in Houston and draws comparisons to jambalaya from the southern U.S., essentially a derivative of jollof. Kavachi tells Marcus a story about her third grade teacher not accepting West African food, after having asked the students to bring in home cooking to share with the class.
