Editorial Reviews

Review

"I like the way Jessica Harris thinks, I very much like the way she writes, and I am a great admirer of the way she cooks. This book is valuable to all thinking, writing cooks."
--Maya Angelou

"Ms. Harris dares the reader to confront preconceptions about the continent...the clearly written recipes...are extremely user-friendly."
--The New York Times

"Harris is an entertaining and informative writer who has traveled throughout Africa for three decades, and this book is worth the price for her narrative alone." --The Chicago Tribune
