Bibi's Kitchen and Ruttenstock
From The MetroWines CookBook Department
Somali Chef Hawa Hassan and food writer Julia Turshen presents 75 recipes
and stories gathered from bibis, grandmothers, from 8 African nations:
South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Comoros, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, and Eritrea.
Through Hawa’s writing, her personal story, the women and the stories behind the recipes,
all come to life. With evocative photography shot on location by Khadija Farah,
and food photography by Jennifer May, In Bibi's Kitchen uses food to teach us
about families, war, loss, migration, refuge, and sanctuary.
