Great Cook Book: A Taste of Haiti

A Taste of Haiti, by Mirta Yurnet-Thomas and the Thomas Family
Published 2002

I borrowed this book from the Burlington County, NJ, Public Library, but I'm going to have to get a copy of my own!  The two recipes I've tried so far were absolutely to die for:
      page 161, Sweet Potato Pudding (Pen Patat)
      page 167, Spicy Peanut Butter (Mamba)

I prepared both dishes for Haitian friends, who enjoyed eating them.  I'm not much of a cook, so I really have to be motivated to work in the kitchen.  This is probably the only cook book I'll blog about.  Mirta has written a lovely foreword and introduction to her book, worth reading before you even peruse the recipes.
