REVIEWS FOR SUCCULENT TALES
A Special Relationship With Food, February 10, 2007Reviewer:The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers (RAWSISTAZ.com) -
There's no doubt about it; Valinda Brown has a very special relationship with food. In her romantic,
if not somewhat erotic, cookbook, SUCCULENT TALES, Brown explores a more sensual take on food selection,
preparation, and consummation. Mostly southern-style, the recipes range from gumbo to greens, and the
poetry and explanations of the selections focus on relishing the food experience with all five senses.
The book features sections including Succulent Soups, Salacious Sea foods, Vixen Vegetables, and Delectable Desserts.
I especially liked her take on Southern Fried Chicken and Honey Whipped Sweet Potatoes.
SUCCULENT TALES is a fresh take on food and how to enjoy its seductive qualities.
