Grandmothers from eight eastern African countries welcome you into their kitchens to share flavorful recipes and stories of family, love, and tradition in this transporting cookbook-meets-travelogue.“Their food is alive with the flavors of mangoes, cinnamon, dates, and plantains and rich with the history of the continent that had been a culinary unknown for much too long.”—Jessica B.

Most notably, these eight countries are at the backbone of the spice trade, many of them exporters of things like pepper and vanilla. We meet women such as Ma Shara, who helps tourists “see the real Zanzibar” by teaching them how to make her famous Ajemi Bread with Carrots and Green Pepper; Ma Vicky, who now lives in suburban New York and makes Matoke (Stewed Plantains with Beans and Beef) to bring the flavor of Tanzania to her American home; and Ma Gehennet from Eritrea who shares her recipes for Kicha (Eritrean Flatbread) and Shiro (Ground Chickpea Stew).Through Hawa’s writing—and her own personal story—the women, and the stories behind the recipes, 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 all about families, war, loss, migration, refuge, and sanctuary.

In this incredible volume, Somali chef Hawa Hassan and food writer Julia Turshen present 75 recipes and stories gathered from bibis (or grandmothers) from eight African nations: South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Comoros, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, and Eritrea. Most notably, these eight countries are at the backbone of the spice trade, many of them exporters of things like pepper and vanilla.

        Starred review from December 1, 2020

        With this unique title, Hassan (CEO of Basbaas Sauce) and chef Turshen (Now and Again) present recipes and stories from a diverse group of grandmothers (bibis) from eight eastern African countries: Eritrea, Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, and the islands of Madagascar and Comoros. Each of the bibis, some of whom have emigrated to the United States, shares recipes that represent the food of her home country as well as her own family legacy. Recipes are accompanied by photographs of each bibi in her kitchen or cooking space and a short interview exploring the significance of the dish. The dishes range from soups and vegetable sides to fish, meat, and cakes. Lesser-known ingredients are clearly described along with options for substitution. No special equipment is required other than a blender or food processor. VERDICT This rich collection deserves special attention for the way in which it allows each bibi to celebrate cooking and food. Home cooks will feel as though they are in the kitchen alongside friends as they explore the richness and diversity of African culinary traditions with this distinctive offering.--Kelsy Peterson, Forest Hill Coll., Melbourne, Australia
