Kwanzaa is a time for families and communities to celebrate African American culture and honor the past. This cookbook and guidebook includes everything you need to observe all seven nights of Kwanzaa, including 25 delicious recipes from across the African diaspora, including the Caribbean and the American South.

The Karamu (the feast) is a special event that brings people closer to their African roots. Because Kwanzaa is a relatively new holiday, the traditions are evolving, and your meal should be one that feels right for you and your family. The main meal of Karamu is typically a one-pot stew or soup, and fruits and vegetables are often served to symbolize the bounty of the harvest. Options for both are included in this book, as well as a variety of other dishes to help you create the kind of celebration that is perfect for your family.
