Review

Love and Sweet Food: A Culinary Memoir is equal in literary stature to his many previous prize-winning works. (The Gourmet Cookbook)

...not just a cookbook... a beguiling book filled with the colour, textures and flavours of the West Indies, served up with a side dish of Barbadian history and politics. (Owen Sound Sun Times)

Teeming with life and humour, Love and Sweet Food reminds us how important it is to cook and eat together... (Georgia Straight)

...a delectable read... (Monday Magazine)
