From the Publisher"[Williams-Forson's] interdisciplinary methods—incorporating literature, print culture, history, personal interviews, and media studies—yield fascinating insights. . . . [Building Houses out of Chicken Legs] shows the potential of interdisciplinary study of food culture."
"A highly informative read. . . . I am sure it will become a permanent part of the foodway canon. Williams-Forson is an excellent writer who has done some interesting research and pieced together a highly readable book."
— The Journal of Folklore
"Forces the reader to think carefully about the role of food in black women's history. And this alone, as one cookbook author might say, is a good thing."
— American Historical Review
"Likely to prove useful to students of cultural identity and stereotype."
— Western Folklore
"I cannot recall an occasion on which I learned so much from a single text."
