Any good (preferably not north) african cookbooks?
Title pretty much says it all! I don't know much about african food at all but I'd love if there was some kind of cookbook, preferably with inspiring pictures!
Preferably I'd like it to not focus on northern african cuisine (Morocco, Egypt etc) and I would rather have it focus on the rest (Southern, central...)! At the same time, it has to be food that's acceptable by western standards (no giant rats or worms and such!).
I suppose a good example of what I'm picturing is stuff like "bobotie".
Soooooo... watcha got?
Thanks! I'll see which one I'll go for. Part of me wants to try out the book listed in the "also bought"-section by Marcus Samuelsson. Partly because I couldn't find the book you linked in any swedish online bookstores and that means I'd have to order it from UK or US and that sounds like a lot of work!
But also because one of the online shops allowed you to read 20 random pages of the book and I kinda liked what I saw. (not the Amazon preview)!
If you're talking about The Soul of a New Cuisine, I have that book and it sounds like some of what you're looking for, but I hesitated to recommend it because nothing I've made from it so far has been truly outstanding. However, my lack of enthusiasm for the recipes I've tried may have more to do with my lack of familiarity with the cuisine than anything else. There was a discussion about an African book for COTM a while back that might be helpful for you (starting with soul of a new cuisine): http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8008...
