Africa's art of cooking is a key part of its history. All toooften Africa is associated with famine, but in Stirring the Pot,James C. McCann describes how the ingredients, the practices,and the varied tastes of African cuisine comprise a body of historically gendered knowledge practiced and perfected in householdsacross diverse human and ecological landscape. McCannreveals how tastes and culinary practices are integral to the understanding of history and more generally to the new literature on food as social history. Stirring the Pot offers a chronology of African cuisine beginning in the sixteenth century and continuing from Africa’s original edible endowments to its globalization. McCann traces cooks’ use of new crops, spices, and tastes, including New World imports like maize, hot peppers, cassava, potatoes, tomatoes, and peanuts, as well as plantain, sugarcane, spices, Asian rice, and other ingredients from the Indian Ocean world. He analyzes recipes, not as fixed ahistorical documents,but as lively and living records of historical change in women’s knowledge and farmers’ experiments. A final chapter describes in sensuous detail the direct connections of African cooking to New Orleans jambalaya, Cuban rice and beans, and the cooking of African Americans’ “soul food.” Stirring the Pot breaks new ground and makes clear the relationship between food and the culture, history, and national identity of Africans.

AN EXILE AND THE FLAVORS OF HIS NATIVE LAND In the sprawling Cortadito, Enrique Fernández explores Cuban cuisine through memories of growing up on the pre-revolutionary island. In his sensual journey through the origin and evolution of staples of Cuban food, Fernández wonders what shapes flavor: is it the soil or the community—whether at home or abroad? As an exile, he affirms, “I will continue to sample the crumbs that fall from [Cuba’s] table and be thankful and resentful at the same time.”

Cuba is so close to us, yet still so inaccessible. Since 1990 and as recently as 1996, photographer Tria Giovan has made nine trips to the elusive island, producing a collection of remarkable color photographs that capture the richness of Cuba in all its complex and enigmatic forms. Presented here are 103 compelling images from her travels, during which she has witnessed extraordinary changes and gained privileged access to an intimate side of Cuban life. This is day-to-day Cuba on visual terms, conveyed through landscapes, urban scenes, portraits, still lifes, and interior views. Beautiful, melancholy, and sometimes disturbing, the images reveal the undaunted spirit of the Cuban people, the former grandeur and lingering beauty of the country, the integrity of its culture, and the timeless quality of life in Cuba as it proceeds amid a climate of uncertainty. The photographs are complemented by excerpts of text from a wide variety of contemporary and historical sources. All are in English and many are also in the original Spanish. Included are passages and poems from important Cuban writers - such as Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Alejo Carpentier, Heberto Padilla, and Fernando Ortiz - in addition to quotes from contemporary journalists, travel accounts, historical documents, and personal memoirs. The result is a compelling portrait of Cuba that is vastly different from that found in any existing book.
