Author: Ziggy Marley
Brand: Marley Ziggy
"[Ziggy's] first collection of recipes pays homage to the flavors of his youth and the food he loves to cook for his wife and five children."
"Ziggy’s cookbook is designed to nourish the body, mind, and soul."
--Food & Wine
"With a health-focused approach, Ziggy Marley reveals memories and food traditions in his new family cookbook."
"The easy directions will have you heading to the kitchen to try these recipes yourself."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"Ziggy rolls up his sleeves to produce Vegetarian Hash, dumplings, Jerk Chicken, Tofu in Coconut Curry, Fish Soup, Caribbean Salsa, Hempseed Pesto, Date and Kale Smoothie, Frittata, Mancakes, Mama Carmelita's flan and even offers the best recipe for baking Stout Gingerbread. Simply explained, gluten-free, organic fruits and vegetables combine to make healthy, vegetarian, vegan and non-vegetarian meals."
--The New York Beacon
"The book features updated versions of favorite Jamaican and Rastafarian-inspired meals from those closest to him. Along with Marley's own creations, like the sublime Coconut Dream Fish and aforementioned Mancakes, recipes include his wife Orly's morning oatmeal, his sister Karen's lentil soup, recipes from his daughter Judah and mother-in-law, fresh juices like those his father enjoyed and contributions from several renowned chefs."
"Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook is a medley of lively recipes like Roasted Yam Tart and Coconut Dream Fish."
"Filled with enticing photos, the book includes the recipes of Marley and those close to him, including sister Karen and daughter Judah. It's a celebration of food and family. Containing meat and fish dishes, as well as vegan and vegetarian creations, it draws not only from the Jamaican and Rastafarian cultures that nurtured Marley, but also his wife Orly's Israeli-Iranian roots."
--The Mercury News
Eight-time Grammy winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon Ziggy Marley's first cookbook, Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook: Delicious Meals Made with Whole, Organic Ingredients from the Marley Kitchen, is inspired by the Jamaican meals Ziggy enjoyed while growing up--with an updated healthy spin. Ziggy was raised with both traditional Jamaican food and the more natural "ital" food of his family's Rastafari culture. The cookbook, including fifty-four recipes, features contributions from family members including Ziggy's wife Orly, sister Karen, and daughter Judah, as well as several renowned chefs.
Many of the recipes are vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free, from delicious and savory egg dishes, to healthy, nourishing juices, soups, and salads, to classic Jerk Chicken and fish recipes. The Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook brings new organic and nutritious recipes to kitchens around the world, intended to promote healthy living with a touch of culture, comfort, and love.
From the introduction by Ziggy Marley:
"I first started dabbling in the kitchen as a teenager. I enjoyed making cornmeal porridge, and it helped me to begin appreciating the idea of nourishment, the idea that food can make your body feel better. I would make Irish moss and some of my dad's juices...Our Rasta culture was different than regular Jamaican culture. We used to have both sides then, because my auntie would cook the more traditional Jamaican food. On the other side, our Rasta culture drew us to a different way of eating. My father would always have a lot of juices and greens and nuts. We were introduced to ital food--fresh, organic, and nutritious, less salt.”

“One sip of their Cuban coffee will keep you up for a week, which is perfect—that way you can have their delicioso desayuno every day.”—Sunny Anderson, Food Network
“Now—finally—this wonderful collection of insightful stories and priceless recipes . . . Qué maravilla!”—John Quiñones, ABC News
“If you haven’t tasted Versailles, you don’t know Miami.”—Pamela Silva Conde, Univision
“How brilliant to be able to take Versailles home!”—Daisy Olivera, former Miami Herald columnist
“What is a trip to Miami without a Cuban sandwich from this Little Havana landmark?”—Chef Art Smith
Featured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, and CNN and named by Time as one of the top ten places to visit in Miami, Versailles Restaurant has been at the heart of the Cuban-American community for decades. Presidents, politicians, and pop stars routinely stop in for a meal and a photo op.
In 1971, Felipe Valls Sr. opened Versailles in Miami’s Little Havana, fulfilling his vision to create a Cuban hub—a place where friends and families could get together to enjoy high quality food at affordable prices. The restaurant’s success still hinges on this premise.
The Versailles Restaurant Cookbook features some of the most beloved recipes from this Miami institution, including fried yuca, vaca frita (shredded beef with onions), lechón asado (roast pork), ropa vieja (shredded beef in tomato sauce), guava pie, and, of course, the one, the only, the original Cuban sandwich. The simplicity of Cuban cuisine makes it surprisingly easy to prepare these bold and savory dishes for which the restaurant is renowned.
Ask the die-hard patrons of Versailles why it is their favorite restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a post-party snack at 2 a.m., and they’ll tell you they keep coming back for the tortilla (potato omelet), the plantain chips with mojo, the croquettes, the moros (mixed black beans and rice), and the rabo encendido (oxtail stew). These flavorful recipes have been passed down through the Valls family for generations; they are the traditional dishes abuela used to make.
Versailles is indeed more than just a celebrated restaurant. For many it is a home away from home—a place where people from all backgrounds congregate to enjoy great food while discussing work, politics, and daily life. This amazing cookbook helps amateur chefs everywhere re-create that same warm feeling right at their own dinner tables.

|Coconuts and Collards: Recipes and Stories from Puerto Rico to the Deep South
Lowest new price: $22.21
List price: $28.00
Author: Von Diaz
When her family moved from Puerto Rico to Atlanta, Von Diaz traded plantains, roast pork, and malta for grits, fried chicken, and sweet tea. Brimming with humor and nostalgia, Coconuts and Collards is a recipe-packed memoir of growing up Latina in the Deep South.
The stories center on the women in Diaz’s family who have used food to nourish and care for one another. When her mother--newly single and with two young daughters--took a second job to make ends meet, Diaz taught herself to cook, preparing meals for her sister after school, feeding her mother when she came home late from work. During summer visits to Puerto Rico, her grandmother guided her rediscovery of the island’s flavors and showed her traditional cooking techniques. Years later the island called her back to its warm and tropical embrace to be comforted by its familiar flavors.
Inspired by her grandmother’s 1962 copy of Cocina Criolla--the Puerto Rican equivalent of the Joy of Cooking--Coconuts and Collards celebrates traditional recipes while fusing them with Diaz’s own family history and a contemporary Southern flair. Diaz discovers the connections between the food she grew up eating in Atlanta and the African and indigenous influences in so many Puerto Rican dishes. The funche recipe is grits kicked up with coconut milk. White beans make the catfish corn chowder creamy and give it a Spanish feel. The pinchos de pollo--chicken skewers--feature guava BBQ sauce, which doubles as the sauce for adobo-coated ribs. The pastelón is shepherd’s pie . . . with sweet plantains. And the quingombo recipe would be recognized as stewed okra in any Southern kitchen, even if it is laced with warm and aromatic sofrito
Diaz innovates for modern palates, updating and lightening recipes and offering vegetarian alternatives. For the chayotes rellenos (stuffed squash), she suggests replacing the picadillo (sautéed ground beef) with seitan or tofu. She offers alternatives for difficult-to-find ingredients, like substi¬tuting potatoes for yucca and yautía--root vegetables typically paired with a meat to make sancocho. Diaz’s version of this hearty stew features chicken and lean pork.
And because every good Puerto Rican meal ends with drinks, desserts, and dancing, Diaz includes recipes for besitos de coco (coconut kisses), rum cake, sofrito bloody marys, and anticuado, an old-fashioned made with rum.
With stunning photographs that showcase the geographic diversity of the island and the vibrant ingredients that make up Puerto Rican cuisine, this cookbook is a moving story about discovering our roots through the foods that comfort us. It is about the foods that remind us of family and help us bridge childhood and adulthood, island and mainland, birthplace and adopted home.
|An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude

Author: Ann Vanderhoof
Brand: Vanderhoof, Ann
Under the Tuscan Sun meets the wide-open sea . . . An Embarrassment of Mangoes is a delicious chronicle of leaving the type-A lifestyle behind -- and discovering the seductive secrets of life in the Caribbean.
Who hasn’t fantasized about chucking the job, saying goodbye to the rat race, and escaping to some exotic destination in search of sun, sand, and a different way of life? Canadians Ann Vanderhoof and her husband, Steve did just that.
In the mid 1990s, they were driven, forty-something professionals who were desperate for a break from their deadline-dominated, career-defined lives. So they quit their jobs, rented out their house, moved onto a 42-foot sailboat called Receta (“recipe,” in Spanish), and set sail for the Caribbean on a two-year voyage of culinary and cultural discovery.
In lavish detail that will have you packing your swimsuit and dashing for the airport, Vanderhoof describes the sun-drenched landscapes, enchanting characters and mouthwatering tastes that season their new lifestyle. Come along for the ride and be seduced by Caribbean rhythms as she and Steve sip rum with their island neighbors, hike lush rain forests, pull their supper out of the sea, and adapt to life on “island time.”
Exchanging business clothes for bare feet, they drop anchor in 16 countries -- 47 individual islands -- where they explore secluded beaches and shop lively local markets. Along the way, Ann records the delectable dishes they encounter -- from cracked conch in the Bahamas to curried lobster in Grenada, from Dominican papaya salsa to classic West Indian rum punch -- and incorporates these enticing recipes into the text so that readers can participate in the adventure.
Almost as good as making the journey itself, An Embarrassment of Mangoes is an intimate account that conjures all the irresistible beauty and bounty from the Bahamas to Trinidad -- and just may compel you to make a rash decision that will land you in paradise.
