The Africa Cookbook by Jessica B. Harris
With more than two hundred traditional and contemporary recipes, "The Africa Cookbook "is a unique window into the long culinary history of a diverse continent. From the savory stews of the western savannah to the curries and chutneys of the Swahili coasts, prominent scholar Jessica Harris has assembled a collection of recipes that reflects the modern innovations and rich heritage of kitchens across Africa. Potatoes with Mint Leaves and Garlic from Algeria and Senegal s classic Theibou Dienn are among the many flavorful dishes that offer a change of pace for contemporary North Americans. Illustrated with archival photographs and peppered with history and anecdote, "The Africa Cookbook "is a celebration of cultures and individuals whose contributions to the way we eat have long been ignored."
