There is a lot of African American history and culture packed in this cookbook and one of my favourite parts is the stories behind each recipe. Learning about cultures that provide us with our favourite foods today is necessary. The history and recipes are there, but it's up to us to put in the work. Recipes I recommend (so far): Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Hibiscus & Ginger Sweet Tea, and Sweet Potato Pie!
