At the Appleton Farmers Market each Saturday morning, you can enjoy some of the best samosas I've ever tasted at this booth, run by a family who came to Appleton five years ago from Somalia. These polite and entertaining young men manage the booth, while mom in the background cooks the food. My son and I made a meal of these treats. Photo taken June 18, 2005.
Here is Bashir and his lovely wife, Rahma, the mastersminds behind the samosa booth shown above. Rahma is preparing the stuffing for the samosas. I spoke with them for a few minutes and was really impressed by these kind and sweet people, who gladly gave me permission to use these photos on my Website. Enjoy some of their samosa! Drop by before noon on Saturdays during the summer, just east of Houdini Plaza. Tell them Jeff Lindsay sent you!
