Format: Paperback
My Mum bought this from Amazon as a gift for me. The photographs are rich and colorful, encouraging me to cook something almost every day for one month! Cynthia's conversational style is an invitation to the table. She really knows how to describe variations on one recipe, island hopping from one to another - famous patty and pastry being one example. The steps are easy to follow - very detailed for beginners. Cynthia's tips whether it's how to use leftover rice , or the ideal temperature for eggs and butter are graphically appealing, breaking up the text. Mum made recipes and sent out family texts when the food was ready. The food gets her telling beautiful texture rich stories of her childhood in Guyana. When I made fried fish (p206) Mum's story of how she gobbled a stack of the stuff that was planned for market the following day had me laughing. "Tastes just like it did in Guyana" some 60 plus years ago. Cynthia includes a lot of Guyanese cooking - inspiration for Mum to go into storytelling tradition. This is a book for family bonding.

This book is great for second generation cooks like myself who don't always have the instinctive way of cooking that many of our elders do. Having said that I have bought four copies so far and gifted them to both novice and experienced cooks alike. They have all been delighted.

This book of recipes is well written and and not too stuffy. I enjoyed just looking through it and reading the witty comments. It definitely reminds me of home and my young days. I remember eating most of those foods with great enjoyment. I will be making a few of them for my family especially the younger generation.
