the silence of the lambs at 30: thrilling (and complicated)

AS SOON AS THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS WAS released on February 14, 1991, it was clear this wasn’t your ordinary horror film. “The Silence of the Lambs is an electrifying exercise in suspense,” David Ansen wrote in his review for Newsweek. “One need only have a healthy appetite for fear to acknowledge that thrillers don’t get much more thrilling.” Based on the 1988 Thomas Harris novel, the film follows Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), a young FBI agent hunting down “Buffalo Bill” (Ted Levine), a serial killer.

Piloncillo has a deep, almost smokey flavor, sometimes with notes of rich caramel and achiote paste—a popular Latin American spice blend—contains annatto, cumin, pepper and other spices. 02 Poulet Yassa Senegal (Scotch bonnet pepper) This roast chicken dish gets its bold taste from Scotch bonnet pepper, which is more than twice as hot as cayenne. This pepper is used across West Africa and the Carribean—and along with lots of heat, it also has a distinct sweetness. 03 Degué Guinea (Millet) This sweet, tangy breakfast pudding is made with black millet, a grain that grows across Africa and is similar to rice once it has been cooked. Millet can have a slightly bitter, nutty taste—a versatile flavor that works in both…
