Alice Waters describes Tanya Holland’s food as “...robust, soulful recipes that use seasonal and local ingredients. This book is a wonderful reflection of the spirit she has fostered at Brown Sugar Kitchen in West Oakland.” If you haven’t yet been to eat at Brown Sugar Kitchen, executive chef and owner Tanya Holland has created a delicious outpost of soul food and a common gathering spot for locals at her popular restaurant. Brown Sugar Kitchen features recipes for 80 restaurant favorites including her famous chicken and waffles dish as well as sides, salads, and desserts like Caramel Layer Cake with Brown Butter Caramel Frosting. The foreword is by Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist and a regular at her restaurant.
