Review: How To Cook Your Husband The African Way

51qxQfjX4yL

This book is a hoot! It IS raunchy, but oh my did the food sound GREAT!! This is a foodie book, a sexy romance-lovers book, and a fun multicultural whirl. It is short–may of you can read it in one go.

A man who makes you feel like that…deserves the best, a slice of Heaven, so I better get slicing and seasoning…

…she writes before a recipe for Turtle With Green Plantain–a dish I won’t be making, thank you! The closest I get to eating turtle is listening to Sinatra sing “is it the good turtle soup–or merely the moc?” Though a church near my one-time home in Louisville had a turtle soup dinner as fundraiser each year and drew huge crowds. My brother has been known to butcher and cook turtles, but then that’s him–not me!

This story has snark, it has sex, it has really weird food–Crocodile or Boa anyone? No? Really? Imagine that! Best of all, it is perfect for a quick extra read for Women in Translation Month! #WITMonth It is also FREE for Kindle–at least here in the U.S.A.

How to Cook Your Husband the African Way by Calixthe Beyala, translated by David Cohen. I think someone pointed out this freebie in their own #WITmonth post, but I neglected to save that information. If you know who it was, please let me know. I like to give credit where credit is due.
