Product Description

About the Author

Charita Jones (endearingly known as Momma Cherri) shot to national stardom when she appeared on Gordon Ramsay's award-winning television programme 'Kitchen Nightmares' - he loved her, he loved her food, he loved her restaurant, but he hated the way she ran her business. In two short weeks he turned her business around, giving her the brilliantly simple idea of 'Soul in a Bowl' and encouraging her to come front of house to 'strut her stuff'. From that moment on her world was completely turned around. Now the owner of one of the most successful restaurants in Brighton and transplanted to bigger premises to cater for the relentless demand for tables, she has become a genuine 'celebrity chef'. She makes regular appearances on ITV's Saturday Cooks with Antony Worrall Thompson, is the guest chef on ITV's This Morning, BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour, BBC Good Food Live as well as making frequent appearances in the national press. She held her own hugely successful Gospel Brunch during the 4 weeks of the Edinburgh Festival and recently won the 'Sussex Entrepreneur of the Year' Award. She has travelled a long road in a very short time and with the publication of her first book, Momma Cherri's Soul in a Bowl, her future as one of the nation's best-loved celebrity chefs looks assured. Born in Philadelphia in the '50's, Charita's early career was in music, and soul music in particular. Travelling to London in the late '70s to appear in a West-End show, she fell in love with the country and its people and decided to settle. She formed the all-girl group The Street Angels (she claims the group to be a black forerunner of the Spice Girls!) and enjoyed a Top-30 hit in1982. Finding the music business a fickle partner she and her husband decided to move to Brighton in 2001 to open a soul food restaurant - the first in the country. Though the food was hugely popular and the customers enthusiastic her restaurant business skills left a lot to be desired - and so entered Gordon Ramsay and the beginning of a meteoric rise to fame and fortune.

I bought this book last week after Charita came and did a cooking demostration in my town. The recipes are easy to follow with loads of large, bright photos. Some background info on her growing up and family cooking make this book a must have. I've stickered all the recipes I want to make and it's nearly the whole book!

This is a great book, and in my opinion has been overlooked as a cookbook by too many people!

Its got some great basic recipes, its not fussy, and is just good home 'soul' food cooking. I've spent some time in the USA and there are some recipes that i've been trying to find - they are in this book and all changed in terms of measurements for the UK.

I'd recommend this book highly!

I bought this book due to the reviews it had received. Fantastic recipes, only problem is, they often call for 'Mommas' cajun seasoning'. Okay, i thought, not a problem - as in the book it says that you can order it from her website. I went to do this and found out that her restaurant has closed down and that I could no longer buy it!!! Now this isnt the end of the world as the recipe for the seasoning is featured in the book, but for a beginner like me I would have preferred to have bought it ready made.Lovely recipes though and I will definitely be giving most of them a go!

Our family have tasted Momma Cherri's delicious cuisine some years ago when we were in Brighton, and I must say that we followed one of her recipes and our taste buds took us back to that wonderful day.

Her Momma’s Cujun Seasoning mix we use most of the time. Highly, highly recommended.

I originally borrowed this book from the public library, after browsing at home decided I wanted to try most of the recipes so purchased a copy for home. So far only done the southern fried chicken, very tasty!

This is the kind of food that will make everyone go mmmm when they try it. Easy food to share with friends etc.

Been looking for a book like this for a long time.

American southern soul food it most deffinately is!

What a great book for anybody that loves to cook for family & friends. Lots of in-expensive cuts of meat are used in the recipes so great for the budget concious too. Most ingredients are what you would already have in the fridge & cupboard aswell. The only reason I have'nt given this a 5* rating is that a few ingredients are not so easy to find if shopping in the local super-market,you can easily get by without them though or use an alternative. I love this book!
