Reviews

“California Soul is a book that will live on my kitchen counter with drips of California olive oil and splats of buttermilk on every page.”—Bobby Flay

“Organized by season, California Soul by Tanya Holland takes a creative approach to recipes, marrying unexpected ingredients with established traditions. . . . With this gorgeously photographed book, Holland, the chef and owner of the now closed Brown Sugar Kitchen in Oakland, shows how intertwined the story of California food is with that of the migration of Black folk out of the South to the West.”—Bon Appétit

“The cookbook deserves a spot on your bookshelf for the recipes alone, but you should save room for it on your nightstand—California Soul is a work of journalism and history as well.”—Food & Wine

“When Alice Walker writes in the foreword, ‘California Soul is the most beautiful cookbook I’ve ever read,’ the rest of us writers can just sit down because she said it best. The lyrical writing tells the story of the Great Migration of Black Southerners to the rest of the country through the lens of chef Tanya Holland’s own family, foodways, and recipes.”—Garden & Gun

“California Soul is a book to savor—both literally, with its recipes, and figuratively, as you absorb its beautiful and informative prose.”—Robb Report

“The new California Cuisine is California Soul. Tanya Holland’s cookbook spotlights seasonal recipes featuring California’s finest ingredients, along with a guide to Black-owned food businesses operated by entrepreneurs who are bringing innovation to agriculture on the West Coast.”—Questlove

“If there is a person who defines California Soul it is Chef Tanya Holland. . . . 
she lives and breathes the lexicon of African American cuisine into her craft and graciously into this work of art.”—Kwame Onwuachi, James Beard award–winning chef and author

“In California Soul, Tanya masterfully weaves the history (and lore) of Black American farmers, businesses, and culinary legends in California to her personal love and ties to this culturally rich region.”—Carla Hall, chef, author, Food Network host

“With California Soul, Chef Tanya Holland sets a lavish table in order to teach y’all California’s food story through a Black lens. You’ll be glad that you pulled a chair up to Chef Holland’s table!”—Adrian Miller, James Beard Award–winning author

“Tanya’s California-style cooking combined with the unique and delicious flavors brought to the West by African Americans make for unforgettable recipes. This book preserves the legacy of California soul food.”—Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse restaurant and The Edible Schoolyard Project

“What a treat to have Tanya’s recipes for delectable and soulful California-inspired dishes.”—Phil Rosenthal, host of Somebody Feed Phil
