Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Medearis's The African-American Kitchen , published in 1994, is both a collection of favorite family recipes and an exploration of the author's culinary heritage, with recipes from Africa, the Caribbean, and the American South. Fourteen years later, she has become known as the Kitchen Diva on a new PBS cooking show of the same name, which focuses on healthful food prepared on a budget. This revised and updated version of her first book includes a new chapter called " 'Divabetics': Healthy Living for a New Millennium," featuring recipes for diabetics and others concerned about their diets; most of these, however, such as Tuna Baguette and Fish Veronique, have less to do with African American cooking than those in the original book (and nutritional analyses would have been helpful here). For most subject collections.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cook book!

    I haven't tried all of the recipes yet, but the ones I have tried have been amazing! The Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe is sooo easy and it tastes absolutely sinful!<BR/><BR/>I went back and bought 3 more copies of this book to give as gifts.
