Résumé
This article analyses the process of negotiation of difference for Senegalese migrants in Italy through consumption of the most popular dish in Senegal, the tie bou jenn. In the context of migration, where there is a need to emphasize solidarity and sameness, differences that are important in Senegal become mediated and moderated both in response to the Italian classifications of immigrants and in response to the need for mutual support. In this context, the consumption of Senegalese tie bou jenn plays a key function in overcoming religious and ethnic differences, fostering the creation of a sense of belonging to a Senegalese community in a broader sense. Ethnographic contexts include daily life in the African Markets in Turin, the Gran Magal (the annual celebration of the beginning of Ahmadu Bamba's exile, the founder of the Mouride brotherhood) and the important role of “les informelles”, the Senegalese women who cook at home and sell tie bou jenn in the street, making it available in the public sphere.
