Fox Morning Show features Angela Medearis' THE NEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN KITCHEN

The nationally syndicated Fox Morning Show with Mike and Juliet recently featured Angela Shelf Medearis, known to the viewers of her acclaimed PBS Cooking Show as "The Kitchen Diva," demonstrating recipes from her new book THE NEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN KITCHEN (Lake Isle Press; September 25, 2008; hardcover). While she was there Angela also taped a Thanksgiving cooking segment viewers won't want to miss (stay tuned for the date).

THE NEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN KITCHEN is filled with authentic and historic recipes from the American South, West Africa, the West Indies, and Central America, recipes that are a unique blend of African, Latino, West Indian, European, and American foods. In fact, African slave chefs created one of the first "fusion" cuisines in America.

THE NEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN KITCHEN is a splendid testament to the immense contributions African-Americans have made to American cuisine. Angela gives readers an opportunity to explore the multifaceted culinary history within the African-American community and showcases recipes that are at the heart and soul of African-American cuisine.
