Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The quintessential cookbook/family album by master home-chef and photographer John Pinderhughes serves up traditional African American cooking with a dash of the nouvelle. From his grandmother Gum Gum's Crab Cakes to his own Papaya Flame, to Redfish with Pecans, Pinderhughes features his favorite recipes by his favorite cooks, who include Verta Mae Grosvenor, author of Vibration Cooking, and Leah Chase, owner of the famous Dooky Chase restaurant, located in New Orleans and author of the Dooky Chase Cookbook.

John Pinderhughes presents his family "in spirit" with their favorite recipes and fondest memories in this treasury of good eating. It captures the diversity of the African-American experience in its savory cooking and rich heritage of its oral tradition. There is something for everyone here, expert and beginner alike.

Synopsis:

This sumptuous collection of soul food and soulful memories by a master chef brings together recipes like Gum Gum's Crab Cakes and Papaya Flamb with reminiscences of his childhood spent fishing, tending gardens and being with his family. 200 recipes. Photos.
