"My husband grew up in Liberia and craves the familiar dishes of his childhood. I have struggled with some old cookbooks for years but the food always tasted inauthentic. This cookbook however is the real thing. He is so happy with the results from all of the recipes I have used, but the Liberian Fried Okra Sauce and the Mafé are favorites. Ingredients are also simple and easy to buy and the recipes are easy to follow. I highly recommend this cookbook."
