    Book Description:

    “This is a sophisticated gem — a miraculous and lovely example of African American flair in the ever-present asymmetry of the Jemima cliche. During the years when Hollywood confined black actresses to roles spoken in broken black dialect or to portraying sassy maids, these upscale recipes of the black middle class showed that there was another side to black female cooks: a sophisticated side.”—Toni Tipton-Martin
