Jerrelle Guy’s writing is as rich as her recipes—both engage the senses and the spirit and draw on a childhood rich with food experiences. Each recipe in the book parallels a memory: Plaited Dukkah Bread is linked to the braids she wore growing up; a citrus pound cake brings back memories of eating Florida oranges. Even the evolution of ingredients reflects Guy’s desire to keep baking the foods she loves as her lifestyle swings toward alternative flours and vegan baking. This gorgeous book is a sweet sensory escape for any food lover.
