I got it and wasn't too impressed. The bean dishes don't contain a lot of meat and the cooking is not extraordinary.. The book also contains a lot of filler with her family history that honestly I didn't find interesting.
I've never eaten at the restaurant, but I didn't see too many recipes I'd bother to try. I'm very disappointed. The recipes lack seasonings and meat where it should be like in beans and peas and greens, for example. I'm sorry I bought it. With the raving over her food, I thought I'd get some good soul food type recipes, but they look bland. What was good at the restaurant.
