Author/narrator Jessica B. Harris's attentive and engaging voice masterfully guides listeners through the tumultuous and triumphant history of African-Americans by way of food and culinary traditions. Harris's delivery is filled with passion and verve as the narrative travels back to the bountiful dishes of precolonial West Africa up to the contemporary dishes prepared by African-American celebrity chefs. The cuisine is an amalgamation of cultures, and Harris provides perfectly accented pronunciations of the French, African, Dutch, and Native (to name a few) foods that have served as influences. Harris's compelling narration displays her knowledge and passion for the way food can heal and hold together an oppressed community. Listeners are sure to feel they are in the hands of a lively and knowledgeable lecturer. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
