Most Helpful Customer Reviews

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By William D. Colburn VINE VOICE on March 12, 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
You won't find many recipes in this, nor will they be very exotic. But you will learn a lot about the driving forces behind the food. Even "Nando's Chickenland" has a section.

Sub-Saharan Africa is broken up in chunks and discussed seperately. Anything that the authors felt might influence food in some way is included, from Nando's to AIDs. This is a great book if you are interested in more than just the recipes, but if you are looking for recipes it might be best to avoid it.
