The Soul of a New Cuisine: A Discovery of the Foods and Flavors of Africa Lowest new price: $18.49

Author: Marcus Samuelsson
Brand: Walters, Helen Sacko/ Walters, Heidi Sacko/ Kifle, Gediyon (PHT)/ Tutu, Desmond (FRW)

"For as long as I can remember, I've had Africa on my mind." Award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson may be best known for his innovative take on Scandinavian cuisine at New York's Restaurant Aquavit, but his story begins thousands of miles away, in Africa. Born in Ethiopia and raised in Sweden by adoptive parents, his life transcends national boundaries, and his individual approach to cuisine is a global yet personal one that draws freely from many ethnic and cultural influences.

In The Soul of a New Cuisine, Marcus returns to the land of his birth to explore the continent's rich diversity of cultures and cuisines through recipes and stories from his travels in Africa. Stunning color images by award-winning photographer Gediyon Kifle bring the breadth of the African experience to life, from fishermen at sunset off the coast of Zanzibar to French baguettes loaded onto a bicycle in Senegal.

Marcus shares more than 200 enticing recipes, including his own African-inspired creations and traditional dishes from all parts of Africa. You can delight in spicy stews and Barbequed Snapper from West Africa and the familiar Mediterranean flavors of dishes like Moroccan Lemon-Olive Chicken, or make your way east and south for the irresistible taste combinations of dishes such as Curried Trout with Coconut-Chili Sauce from Kenya and Apple-Squash Fritters from South Africa's Cape Malay. Using ingredients that are readily available in American markets, the recipes are doable as well as delicious.

Of course, one of the keys to authentic African cooking is the use of spice blends and rubs, which elevate simple cooking techniques to an excitingly varied and intense level. Marcus includes his favorites here, with blends that go from sweet to spicy and feature everything from hot chili peppers and peppermint leaves to sesame seeds and ginger.

As he says, Africa is "a state of mind that I hope this book will help you tap into wherever you are." By cooking with a handful of this and a pinch of that, trying new foods and enjoying old ones in a new way, and lingering over meals with family and friends, you will bring the free, relaxed spirit of African cooking to your table and discover for yourself the soul of a "new" cuisine.

150 Best Tagine Recipes: Including Tantalizing Recipes for Spice Blends and Accompaniments

150 Best Tagine Recipes: Including Tantalizing Recipes for Spice Blends and Accompaniments Lowest new price: $13.73
Lowest used price: $3.93
List price: $24.95
Author: Pat Crocker
Brand: Robert Rose

Authentic yet easy-to prepare recipes that take their inspiration from Morocco.

Tagine takes its name both from a Moroccan dish as well as the pot in which the dish is cooked -- typically a large and shallow pot with a conical lid. Tagines involve the slow simmering of meats or vegetables along with a medley of herbs and spices, the result being an aromatic and intoxicating combination of taste and texture.

This book offers a comprehensive history of traditional Moroccan tagine cooking, including an extensive "Tagine Know-How" section that answers all possible questions about tagines and cooking with tagines, as well as a "North African Flavor Footprint" section that profiles the 20 herbs and spices that give authentic flavor to these dishes.

Home cooks can bring Morocco into their kitchens with these tantalizing dishes:

  • Cinnamon lamb tagine with apricots
  • Honey-ginger vegetable tagine
  • Beef tagine with figs and walnuts
  • Artichoke and shellfish in almond milk
  • Minted lemon whitefish
  • Saffron shrimp tagine with avocados
  • Pomegranate chicken tagine
  • Moroccan vegetable tagine
  • Fiery beef tagine with vegetables.

To round off the Moroccan experience of the meal, Pat Crocker also includes recipes for dips, sauces and authentic souk specialties (typical street foods sold in markets), salads and sides as well as the traditional beverages and sweets.

With authentic yet easy-to prepare recipes that will please both meat eaters and vegetarians, home cooks can create a true North African taste odyssey.
