Prison Good!

Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook by Albert “Prodigy” Johnson and Kathy Iandoli


Albert “Prodigy” Johnson served three and half years in prison, where he mainly focused on his health. Commissary Kitchen provides a deeper understanding of the meals consumed in prison. Along with recipes provided, this book reminisces on situations in prison involving food. As meal prep in prison is constricted, this book will speak to anyone who has served time, curious about prison life, or those who have limited access to cooking luxuries, such as college students.

Written with a great sense of humor, Johnson writes about having to navigate through his incarceration in discovering the means to recreate healthy dishes with intelligence in order to control his lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia.

This cookbook includes the importance of how proper nutrition provides nourishment not only physically but also emotionally. In addition to ingenuous cooking, this cookbook will address the important roles food plays in building community as well as the movement of veganism in hip-hop culture.

Cook with Charisma Using “Tasting the Seasons”

If you’re searching for recipes that are simple yet sophisticated, nutritious yet delicious, and seasonal yet timeless then “Tasting the Seasons” may be the only cook book you need. Kerry Dunnington’s “Tasting the Seasons” does not simply list 250 awesome recipes, the classy cookbook contains personal thoughts on each dish, recommends settings that they may be appropriate for, and even humorously relays some of the joyous reactions of those who indulged in these meals for the first time.

To compliment  the smart and friendly voice the book is written in, the recipes are well worth their salt (or lack thereof) as well. Between  the fried crab fritters and the Christmas lima bean soup, or the crunchy banana waffles and the global egg rolls, there are certainly at least a few courses for everyone. There are recipes for food lovers of every cooking skill level and flavor preference. On top of all of this Dunnington makes a point to mention any possible ways of making these dishes in an eco-friendly manner and even includes a glossary of eco-friendly techniques and tips. Regardless of your confidence in cooking or your charisma in the kitchen “Tasting the Seasons” is a cook book for those who want to share an all around pleasing meal with friends or loved ones.
