This is my kind of cookbook: from the extensive chapter introductions and headnotes, I learned something on every page. As a Caucasian, so much of the culinary history and its backstories were, I am sorry to say, new to me. Moreover, I stuck a quite respectable number of Post-It's on the book's pages, and I look forward to honoring these traditions by making many dishes from the book.
Only a few of the ingredients are not accessible to me, living as I do in the middle of nowhere; and so, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I can find the vast majority easily. The author occasionally suggests substitutions and brand names: two things that are always appreciated! Finally, almost every recipe has a gorgeous color photo, the exceptions being simple sauces and dressings.
I've cooked several recipes already, and can particularly recommend the sweet potato mango cake. My husband said it was the best cake he'd ever eaten, and he likes cake!
The anthropologist/chef in me is absolutely thrilled.
The research and the modern interpretations are so much fun. Now I know that I have loved slick downs all of my life.
Never mind that it is also a really nice book. The photos are as comforting as the food.
Now excuse me while I go whip up some Jam Cake.
