Everyone loves "Southern" food, but until recently few acknowledged the heavy influences of soul food, which itself was born of necessity from West African cuisine and slavery.

Cornbread & Collard Greens is more than a cookbook. It's a mirror into the non-traditional Southern African-American diaspora, through which history and creative interpretations of soul foods are reflected.

Deah effortlessly infuses her love of history with her personal familial narratives and carefully crafts recipes she's designed as a nod to a skill her ancestors perfected - creating delicious meals out of not only a necessity but imagination. Her unique cooking style is complemented by her influences from various countries she has visited. No other book will teach you the history of collard greens, while simultaneously showing you how this Southern staple inspired her collard green stuffed ravioli with buttermilk b chamel sauce or her creamy collard green soup with crispy prosciutto.

With more than fifty authentic recipes that beautifully capture the flavors and essence of modern soul food cooking, Cornbread & Collard Greens is an indispensable addition to any cookbook, history and memoir collections.
