A little girl helping her grandmother prepare a holiday meal learns about the origins of soul food in this powerful picture book that celebrates African American cuisine and identity from an award-winning author. Know what I like most about Grandma' s kitchen? More than jambalaya? More than sweet potato pie? Even more than pralines? Grandma' s stories! Every meal Grandma cooks comes with a story. What will today' s story be? While visiting her grandma in Louisiana, nine-year-old Frances is excited to help prepare the New Year' s Day meal. She listens as Grandma tells stories-dating back to the Atlantic Slave Trade-about the food for their feast. Through these stories, Frances learns not only about the ingredients and the dishes they are making but about her ancestors and their history as well. A celebration of the stories that connect us, this picture book urges us to think about the foods we eat and why we eat them. This book was inspired by the author' s own childhood and includes her family' s very own recipe for pralines in the back!
