The Mediterranean coastal countries are dealt with elsewhere, and other volumes acknowledge the important culinary debts owed by Latin American, the Caribbean Islands and the United States to the people of Africa. As you read this book you will share in the adventures of a man who has spent more than six decades getting to know Africa and its delicious regional food. Illustrated throughout with color photographs of the people and their cuisine including a fine collection of recipes. The Recipe Book accompaning this volume was designed for use in the kitchen. It contains all of the 37 recipes in the chapters plus 83 more. Size: 8.5 x 11" 208 Pages / 6.5 X 9 " 144 Pages. Bookseller Inventory # 30689
