The Americas are a melting pot, quite literally, when it comes to food. Mixing together the flavors from cultures around the world, Vertamae Grosvenor explores the roots of down-home, pan-American comfort food in Vertamae Cooks Again: More Recipes from the Americas' Family Kitchen.
For this companion cookbook to the second season of her public television show, Vertamae surveys the home foods of the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Haiti, and beyond, getting a taste of local cooking from real family cooks. With over 100 recipes to warm the soul and tempt the taste buds, Vertamae Cooks Again includes traditional American favorites like Picnic Chicken, Skillet Corn Bread, and Applesauce Cake. For more excitement, try Cuban Whole Roast Pig, African Sweet Potato Stew, Okra and Pork in Creole Sauce, or even Jerked Veggie Burgers (some traditions do change with the times).
Poet, storyteller, and culinary anthropologist Vertamae Grosvenor seasons each recipe with insightful and humorous facts, folklore, and history. Vertamae Cooks Again is a celebration of American cooking at its best - straight from the family kitchen.
Vertamae Grosvenor lives in Washington, D.C. and is the host of the public television series The American Family Kitchen. She is a regular commentator on National Public Radio All Things Considered, and the award winning host of Seasonings. Most recently, she was the culinary consultant for the film, Beloved, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Toni Morrison.
