Award-winning playwright, novelist, and poet Ntozake Shange is author of Liliane; Sassafrass, Cypress, and Indigo; and for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf, among other works. She is associate professor of English at Prairie View A & M University.From Library Journal:
With lyrical originality and musical patois, playwright, novelist, and poet Shange (Liliane: Resurrection of the Daughter, LJ 11/15/94) intertwines the history and food of the "African Diaspora" into a beautiful little book in the tradition of M.F.K. Fisher. This collection of essays?conversations might be more accurate?takes the reader to the tables of African Americans; the kitchens of Nicaragua, London, Barbados, and Brazil; and the feasts of Africa. Proud tradition plays an important role here, but don't overlook the book's value for the chef. Easy-to-follow recipes for "collards to bring you money," rack of lamb, hominy, feijoada, barbecue, gumbo, okra, and couscous are among the 34 exotic dishes, and most of the ingredients?except maybe turtle eggs?are readily available. Herein is also contained the coveted secret of determining a watermelon's ripeness! An inexpensive cookbook with a lot of class.?Wendy Miller, Lexington P.L., Ky.
