  • Description or summary of the book: Praised as 'masterful' by the New York Times and 'uncommonly talented' by Publishers Weekly and winner of the 1999 Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award, Austin Clarke has a distinguished reputation as one of the preeminent Caribbean writers of our time. In Pig Tails 'n Breadfruit, he has created a tantalizing 'culinary memoir' of his childhood in Barbados. Clarke describes how he learned traditional Bajan cooking-food with origins in the days of slavery, hardship, and economic grief-by listening to this mother, aunts, and cousins talking in the kitchen as they prepared each meal.Pig Tails 'n Breadfruit is not a recipe book; rather, each chapter is devoted to a detailed description of the ritual surrounding the preparation of a particular native dish-Oxtails with Mushrooms, Smoked Ham Hocks with Lima Beans, or Breadfruit Cou-Cou with Braising Beef. Cooking here, as in Clarke's home, is based not on precise measurements, but on trial and error, taste and touch. As a result, the process becomes utterly sensual, and the author's exquisite language artfully translates sense into words, creating a rich and intoxicating personal memoir.
