The New African-American Kitchen is much more than a cookbook. It is a testament to the notable contributions African- Americans have made to American cuisine. Angela Medearis gives readers an opportunity to explore the culinary history within the African-American community and showcases recipes that are at the heart and soul of African-American cuisine. The New African-American Kitchen is filled with authentic and historic recipes from the American South, West Africa, the West Indies, and Central America, recipes that blend African, Latino, West Indian, European, and American foods. Through her recipes, Medearis gives credit to African slave chefs, who created one of the first “fusion” cuisines in America, combining foods similar to those they prepared in Africa with the culinary traditions of the locales in which they were enslaved. These inventive cooks created original, classic recipes that are forever woven into the fabric of American culture.
