The Cooking Gene made it to the Best Food Books of All Time!!

I’m happy to announce that my book, “The Cooking Gene: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South”, made it to BookAuthority’s Best Food Books of All Time:

BookAuthority collects and ranks the best books in the world, and it is a great honor to get this kind of recognition. Thank you for all your support! Please keep buying this book retail (not second hand) so I can keep seending chefs to West Africa from my sales!
The book is available for purchase on Amazon. Buy the paperback brand new! 🙂

    Congratulations! We were thrilled to attend your discussion at Monticello;s Heritage Harvest Festival last Saturday. It was #1 on list of things to do and did not disappoint. Love your work and the insights I have gained from it (purchased your autographed book at Montpelier). Keep it coming – I am hungry for more.

  12. This book is amazing. I got the audio from the local library on overdrive and said, “No. I need to invest my money in this work of art.” And I went on and bought the book. It is for sure a keeper. Brilliant. Thank you for doing this work. I am Yoruba from Nigeria and I feel that after living in the US for almost 40 years, I am just starting to get to the point of appreciating and discovering even more of the connection of West Africa and African Americans. You are simply brilliant. Thank you.
