When I ordered this book I wasn't sure what to expect. I've never had Somali food, but heard about a Somali Restaurant in another state that was really good. Rather than travel I though I would try my hand at it since I'm a huge fan of cooking world cuisines.The first thing I loved is that there is a color photo for nearly every recipe. When you are unfamiliar with a cuisine I think this helps to let you know what it should look like and what you might find more appealing.I have made some of the recipes and was so pleased that I'm encouraged to make more of them. The ingredients are obtainable in most grocery stores and the instructions are clear and simple. Clearly this was a labor of love for the author and her effort shows. As a picky eater I didn't find this to be a scary cuisine filled with fish eye stew type recipes. These home style meals have great appeal, are economical and would be a HIT at your next dinner party. This book does include some nice desserts and some refreshing alcohol free drinks as well.
Somali food is divine! It is so aromatic and layered with subtle flavors. This book is jam packed with easy to follow recipes that taste exactly like home. I make everything from vegetarian entrées, to Somali breads, to Somali-style fruit juices and deserts. I never thought I'd see a cookbook like this. It's exactly what I've been waiting for. I love it!
I have used most of the recipes in this book, they are very well detailed, simple, and so delicious.I always wanted to know how Somali cuisine was prepared and cooked, this book was indeed my openning into that venue and now I am becoming a specialized cook in the recipes contained in this book.I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to cook any sizzling recipes and different kinds of spicy and not so spicy foods.Job very well done!
The Somali cuisine is a one of the best ethnic cookbooks in North America. The recipe is easy to follow and pictures are just fantastic. It is very helpful for those interested in East African and South Asian dishes. It is particularly helpful for everyone interested in ethnic dishes. My favorite dish is the Moos Bukaani (Plantain Banana). I like it because I did not have the chance to learn how to make it on my own. But, thanks to the Somali cuisine, now I know how to make it on my own. It has my full recommendation.Lul Omar

I have tried most of the recipes in this cookbook for the past year. My culinary skills in preparing Somali food has greatly improved because of this cookbook. Very easy to follow and precise but unique. Money well spent. Excellent!
