Chef Joe Randall and Toni Tipton-Martin showcase the rich heritage of African-American cooking in this authentic collection of 300 recipes. Drawn from Joe Randall’s personal recipes, the book also includes recipes from chefs who have worked with Randall’s A Taste of Heritage Foundation, including Edna Lewis and Patrick Clark.
African-American cooking has evolved over more than 200 years to become a sophisticated and distinctive cuisine. More than just ""soul food,"" African-American cuisine has become world class. Experience Catfish Stew with Cornmeal Dumplings, Southern Fried Quail, or Crepes with Country Fried Apples. Geared to the home cook, the recipes are also enhanced by a section of menus, complete with wine selections. The final section introduces readers to the stories and menus of the prominent African-American chefs who contributed to the book.
