Storyteller, poet, & culinary anthropologist Vertamae Grosvenor displays the pleasures of Afro-Atlantic cooking in this companion to the PBS series “The Americas’ Family Kitchen.” Here, as in the series, she shows how African tastes & traditions have influenced the various cuisines of America, acquiring new flavors & ingredients along the way in Central America, South America, & the Caribbean. You’ll find more than a hundred mouth-watering, down-home recipes, spiced with Vertamae’s anecdotes, humor, & historical insights. The recipes range from the surprising to the happily familiar, from zesty Bahian shrimp creole to the simple pleasures of sweet potato pie. And everything from Hoppin’ John to Sunshine Soup to Low Country Red Rice has a story. Illus.
