Product description

Review

"What moves me most about In Bibi's Kitchen is Hawa Hassan's connection with these admirable women whose cooking traditions serve their families and help define their communities at home and abroad. I am thankful to see their faces, to meet them in their own words, and to know them and their diverse cultures far beyond the stifling generalities that America so often wields to conflate African people. This book illustrates what the wisest among us have known all along: The seat of power in food--its soul and expertise--has always begun at home, at the hands of skilled women in their kitchens."--Osayi Endolyn, James Beard Award-winning writer

"In Bibi's Kitchen is rooted in tradition and reverence, but carries forth its stories with an urgency and energy that feels brand new. The book's tenderly reported interviews and East African recipes shine a light on a group who must be seen, must be heard from. Of course we all need more bibis in our lives. And we need the ones in these pages more now than ever. In Bibi's Kitchen is an inimitable accomplishment and an essential read that will enrich kitchens and souls everywhere it lands."--Howie Kahn, New York Times bestselling author, James Beard Award winner, and host of Take Away Only

Reviewed in the United States on 29 October 2020
I’m LOVING this book so far! I made the Doro Wat, stewed spinach, and flat bread from the Eritrean section of this book and it was PHENOMENAL!!! I was a little nervous at first because I’ve never cooked African cuisine before but I was floored at how easy it was to make a DELICIOUS and healthy dinner! I can’t wait to try the other recipes!
