About this month's cookbook: 

Yawd = comfort food that sticks to your ribs! In his first cookbook, star chef Adrian Forte shares more than 100 of his inspiring recipes to get you fired up in the kitchen.  Incorporate more African ancestral ingredients into your repertoire with Ackee & Saltfish Fritters or Okra Pilaf; and try the dishes Adrian Forte has now made his signature like Oxtail Gnocchi or Jerk-Marinated Chicken Coq au Vin.
As well as great recipes—including a chapter on soups and porridges and oodles of plant-based options—Yawd explores the key ingredients of Afro-Caribbean cuisine and gives multi-use recipes for essentials such as Jerk Dry Rub and Marinade or Pickled Scotch Bonnets.

Co-sponsored by City Market.
