My step dad knows BBQ like few others, and he can cook anything you name to perfection. If he said to get this book first well that's good enough for me. I don't need pretty pictures, I want to learn more about good Q and I'm confident this is the place to start.
By the way Dad sang with the Ink Spots and by mentioning his name and our family relationship, Winnie Gates, at the 12th and Brooklyn Gates' BBQ, treated my wife and I like visiting royalty when we passed through KC in 1974. We were served drinks in her office and she comped our ribs! So please feel confident in Dad's view that this book is the place to begin a serious study of BBQ. He said there are lots of other valuable recipes as well.
I used it so much that I needed to replace it. For the woman who feels challenged when it comes to culinary skills, I highly recommend this book.
No one will ever know your secret, until you choose to share it!
After looking through the pages and seeing the advertisement for The Ebony Cookbook, I decided to order it and am very glad I did. I thumbed through the book and was overjoyed to see many of the recipes I believe my family has used over the years for meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas. They just don't make food like this anymore and being an owner of this cookbook feels like I am owning a part of black history.
If you are wondering where your grandmother came up with her "secret" recipe for her famous pound cake, how your favorite auntie came up with her famous sweet potatoe pie or why your mom only makes her famous yeast rolls, check this cookbook out. I can bet the farm they got their recipes from this book and have tweaked the recipe to make it their own over the years.
Buy this book and make sure to hand it down to your son or daughter. They too will own a piece of black history and perfect those famous family recipes in the process!
