Momma Cherri and her restaurant 'The Soul Food Shack' shot to fame after being featured on Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" in 2005. The larger than life star of the show was Charita Jones a.k.a Momma Cherri. Since her life was turned around thanks to Gordon Ramsay's business sense, Charita has become a TV star and celebrity chef in her own right, appearing regularly on ITV, BBC, national radio and in the press. Her first book is a wonderfully colourful collection of soul food, "God's Own Comfort Food". With its roots in African-American cuisine, soul food joyously celebrates hearty, spicy home cooking - recipes perfect for sharing and partying. With stunning photography by Peter Cassidy, this brilliantly original book showcases a great array of soul food classics, given a unique twist by Momma Cherri. Written in Momma's evocative and forthright style, the book provides fascinating insights into the origins of soul food and happily stresses the importance of fresh, affordable food cooked with passion and flavour. Great Britain should get ready for the Soul Food revolution!
