    ‘What is a cookbook? Maybe a rendering as a magazine, something riding a wave of consumer expectation and suitability? What if it looks like our best friend’s biography and comes across with details of abject honesty and purpose? How many of us have rendered our own chickens or pounded our spices by hand? What if our mother’s hand was engaged in the bargain? Or what happens when we are so far from home we can’t even feel our mother’s hand? This book details the love of land, family and process extant. Recipes celebrate the memory.’

    ‘A tasty book filled with love, food and wonderful stories of Haiti. I highly recommend it as a main course or a fine dessert. She captures much of what is positive about Haiti. Try it you’ll like it.’

    ‘More than a book of recipes. An intimate joyous, illuminating recount of an often misunderstood and misrepresented culture through the real-lived experiences of its author. Unique and flavourful recipes guaranteed to be a first time encounter for many but a true delight. Beef up your cooking skills and open your heart to a world many have never encountered or conquered in such an inspiring and graceful way. A must for those seeking culinary diversity.’

    ‘I loved reading Elsy’s stories and learned so much. There are similarities to the experience of my Puerto Rican father & grandparents. Weaving between family stories & Haitian food traditions is also a draw for foodies like me.’
