I discovered this book when the author, Ivy Newton-Gamble, started following me on [...]. I saw she had published two African cookbooks - "A Sweet Taste of Africa" a cookbook of African sweets and "A Field of Greens" a cookbook of African soups and stews.

"A Sweet Taste of Africa" has some commonly asked for recipes such as maandazi, fried bananas, and chai masala. There is a wide range of recipes from all over Africa - Algeria, Angola, Central African Republic, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, and Uganda. You will also find recipes with an Asian flair from North Africa - not unexpected as there is a very large Asian and also Muslim population in Africa. The whole of Africa is well represented in this cookbook.

With all the really great recipes in this cookbook of African sweets, I was actually disappointed so I am going to suggest a couple of changes for the second edition.

The first thing I noticed when I opened "A Sweet Taste of Africa" was the lack of photographs. There are some black and white photos of daily life in Africa, but there are no photographs of the recipes with the exception of the front and back covers. I was really disappointed. Personally, it's the photos that make me want to try out a new recipe. How do you know how the recipe is supposed to look when you've made it? Did you make the recipe correctly? Adding full color photos to this recipe book would be a huge improvement along with a list of the recipes pictured on the front and back covers.

Something interesting in this cookbook is the list of ten words from different African languages at the beginning of each chapter.

Ms. Ivy Newton-Gamble graciously captured many of the sweet recipes from the beautiful continent of Africa in her book entitled: "The Sweet Taste of Africa". She presented these recipes in such a way that made them very easy to understand and follow. In fact, she presented the sweet pastries, beverages, and preserves from Africa in an ideal way for you to enjoy without ever being in Africa. Ms. Gamble was also extraordinarily delightful in her presentation of the countries from which she shared their recipes. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through these mouthwatering recipes and it was indeed a sweet culinary voyage. I owe her a great debt of gratitude.

i like this cookbook, but know it's limited. I didn't expect anything fancy, just the local type fair and thats what it delivers. I don't however find anything terribly exciting in this cookbook
