You will learn from Vibration Cooking something about the anger, pride, generosity, and will of one black woman. Vertamae’s autobiography-travelogue-cookbook has a rare distinction: There’s something in it for everybody―of either sex or any color.(Washington Post)
The fact that Vibration Cooking is now in its fourth reprinting bespeaks both its popularity and its necessity. The current scholarly interest in women’s studies, African American studies, African diasporic studies, and food studies provides no better time for reacquainting readers with Vertamae’s work. Her book is no less important now than when she first penned it over forty years ago. . . . Black food is more than kitchen scraps; black women are more than mammy figures, and black culture is more than a monolith. . . . I like this book!(Psyche Williams-Forson from the foreword)
A very fine biography of a little Gullah girl who somehow finds her way to Paris, great cooking, and great writing skills. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Wanda H. Giles
