“As I read through this cookbook, Fofky’s Kitchen, by Papatia Feauxzar, I found my thoughts adrift to a distant place where food and family seamlessly intertwine. Each shared dish, whether simple or complex, conveyed a human story, a history, and a taste that clearly reminded the author of home. She presented each recipe in support of the connectivity between food, culture, history, and family… Fofky’s Kitchen is a lovely taste of home, shared with love, enthusiasm and humor. Well done.” — Sahar Abdulaziz, Author of EXPENDABLE
“… Fofky’s Kitchen brings us some new and exciting and not to mention easy to make meals from the Ivory Coast. Included in this awesome cookbook are some of my favorites such as Ginger Juice aka Ginger Beer and Bissap (Hibiscus) tea…The one that peaked my curiosity is the Fried Yams! Yes, you can fry yams. I never knew that, but now I do, and I will. But wait! You can boil them too! That along with some braised beef and grilled chicken recipes will be sure to enhance your food repertoire… Go ahead and enhance your palate with Fofky’s Kitchen: Easy Recipes for Traditional Street Foods by Papatia Feauxzar.” — Khadijah Abdulhaqq, Author of Nanni’s Hijab
“This is a Kitchen I want to step into — and one we all need to step into — to learn about (halal) West African cuisine. The immaculate, mouthwatering photos are almost enough to satisfy my appetite.” — Shireen Hakim, Author of Salternatives: 25 Natural and Flavorful Alternative Seasonings to Salt
“I was so excited to have the opportunity to read Fofky’s Kitchen. I love to try out new cuisines and was not at all familiar with Ivorian cuisine… I was also pleasantly surprised to find some dishes that are very familiar to me. Many Americans forget about how African flavors have influenced our cuisine. But ingredients such as okra and grits (corn porridge), or recipes like beignets and boiled peanuts (my personal favorite!) are very common and well-loved in the American South. I love how beautifully this book is laid out, with photos and insights into each recipe. The majority of the recipes have very simple instructions and seem like they will be very easy to make… I definitely recommend this cookbook, not only to Ivorians looking for a taste of home, but to anyone who would like to try out a new and delicious cuisine!”— M.K. Johnston, Author of Halal Comfort Food: The New Muslim Guide To Going Halal
