When I was in New York last October for my birthday, we went to dinner at the Chef's Club and JJ Johnson was the featured chef for that month. My friend Stephanie decided to split the collard green salad and the fried sea bass. One of the best meals I have ever had.
I reached out to JJ Johnson on Instagram to get the collard green salad recipe. He told me that it was going to be in his cookbook coming out in March 2018. As soon as the book came out, I purchased it. So far I have made the collard green salad, the cornbread and the apple cider-glazed Brussels sprouts recipes. Everything came out great. I can't wait to try other recipes in the book.
I love this cook book , Great Food ! Absolutely wonderful ! So far I made the collard green salad with the coconut dressing and the Bebop Chicken Chili , my guests all wanted to know where the recipes came from , I showed them “ Between Harlem and Haven „ . I definitely will try more recipes !
I have a self imposed moratorium on cookbooks. I love them so much, but my countertops can only hold so much. I had to have this cookbook upon an endorsement on Instagram, though. The minute I heard "Afro Asian American cooking" I knew, as a Southerner, I needed this. Don't just look at the recipes; read the reasoning and stories behind the recipes. I actually cried reading this cookbook.... in a great way. Stop reading this and go buy it!!!!
Arrived quickly & in perfect condition...a beautiful book with great recipes and incredible illustrations. Some ingredients in a few recipes a bit challenging to find, but most are easily reproduced. It's just a beautiful book to page through on a rainy day as well as to search for a new dish to try.
Although a different twist and an effort to bridge culinary interests, the book was not quite what I expected. I applaud the concept, but with a name like "Between Harlem and Heaven" I was looking for more Afro and less Asian, especially with the authors. The introduction of Asian influences warrants more adjustment for me. Also, the photos didn't always do justice to the meals. Maybe it was the lighting, composition or setting; but it could have been more appealing.
Oh, it took me back to my beloved place, my home for three years, 2005-2008. Such nostalgia and beauty in the stories, recipes, dishes, and pictures. I also have Grace the Table by Mr. Smalls, which I have cherished for many years.
This is such an AWESOME cookbook! I love the written pieces as much as I love the pictures and recipes. The authors combine American Soul Food with foods from other countries with recipes requiring ingredients I've never heard of. But, those I won't make right away lololol. This is a beautifully developed item, and I'm so very glad I found it!!
