Meet the Author

Kali Amanda Browne was born in New York, came of age in Puerto Rico and has spent her entire adult life in Brooklyn, NY.

    Not your average cookbook

    This book reads more like excerpts from a newspaper column than a true cookbook. And read it you must, because half of the recipes are incorporated into the text. A few interesting descriptions of more exotic fruits like plaintain and guava, and some history is provided. But overall, the recipes are heavily Caribean, and include ingredients like white wine and capers, things that are not usually found in my pantry.

    Very bland

    On a book entitled "Kail: The Food Goddess", I was expecting something filled with delicious and slightly exotic recipies, and some rather interesting memories and recollections from a mature person who's had lots of expereience with both. Instead, the book reads like it was written by a college student who just liked to cook in their dorm. There's nothing wrong with the latter, it just doesn't live up to expectations. It also doesn't help that there's quite a few typos - "lest" instead of "lets" is the biggest and most common example I can think of. The only real plus I can think of for this book - it's short.

    Just a feel good book

    Now that I have read this, I really like it. I especially like her humor. Also the recipes, and how she suggests different ingredients for each recipe. Glad I took a very low risk on this book. Afterall, if I didn't like it, I just had to delete it. Mel

    Title doesn't sound right

    I don't know about this cook book but title itself is wrong. "Kali" is not goddess of food but goddess who fights against evil. Goddess of food is " annapoorna"

    The goddess Kali

    For the individual whowished to inform us all of the nature of the Hindi Goddess Kali and her wrathful ways, I would just like to point out that the author of this book is a woman named Kali. I would think that well read folks might read a little prior to inserting foot-in-mouth. And for those complaining about the stories, which part of the title did you not understand?

    Interesting, but a few too many stories and not enough recipies. Does contain some good ideas though.
