In this incredible volume, Somali chef Haha Hassan  and renowned food writer Julia Turshen present seventy-five recipes and stories gathered from Bibi's (grandmother) from eight African nations: Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Madagascar, and Comoros. We meet women such as Ma Shara, who helps tourists " See the real Zanzibar" by teaching them how to make her famous Ajemi Bread with Carrots and Green Pepper; Ma Vicky, who makes Matoke(Stewed Plantains With Beans And Beef) to bring the flavours of Tanzania to her American home; and Ma Gehennet from Eritrea, who shares her recipes for Kicha(Eritrean Flatbread) and Shiro (Ground Chickpea Stew). Through personal narratives and evocative photography shot on location, the women, and the stories behind the recipes, come to life.
