This is no ordinary cookbook. Spivey (history, U. of Miami) relates a complicated story of cultural survival, presenting recipes used by people of African descent currently living around the world, along with a documented history of Africa's agricultural life and of the roles played by explorers and merchants in the spread of African cuisine. This book dispels the myth that there is no such thing as African cuisine, and replaces it with an understanding of how Africa's flavorful contributions continue to characterize a variety of foods and cultures today.
