    A quirky little story of a young lady who wants to be attractive to men. She tries to look like a white, skinny woman than meets the new tenant in her building. She then tries to tempt him through her cooking skills. There is a lot of local recipes but unless you have access to a boa, porcupine or crocodile then these have little use.

    This book was quite disappointing for me. I read the French translation and from reviews, and the summary, felt that this would be an encouraging, feminist story about a woman searching for love and her place in Parisian society. And it did begin like that. There were very interesting concepts that touched on themes like racism, exoticism, and femininity. However, as the story progressed, particularly in the end (don't even get me started on the epilogue), it became a typical "woman in the kitchen" tale. Her idealized love turns out to be less than anticipated. Which is horribly sad. Yet in the end, food, that constant in the narrator's life, is what she turns to. Her husband cheats on her, and she offers to cook for him. Not the kind of story I appreciate, nor do I think it is a very positive read. The language is not particularly difficult, however the style contains much below the surface of the text which can be quite frustrating to get through. Rating: 1 star, this story attempts to defy stereotypes but falls right into them, the summary will lead to disappointment.

    I have an aversion to books that mix fiction with recipes - and in this case, far too much of the book is recipes and many of them would be pointless unless you happen to have a nearby butcher who stocks crocodile and the like.I didn't care if she got her man or not. I'm surprised that such a short book can be so boring. Unless you are really interested in food, give this one a miss. And it's probably worth pointing out that she doesn't 'cook' her husband - she cooks her way to get a husband. Totally different premise entirely.

    Chicken with lime. Ingredient laurel leaves mentioned in error. Laurel leaves are poisoned. In directions bay leaves are listed instead which is correct. . Story not of music h interest but some of the recipes look interesting Chicken with lime interesting receipts but use bay leaves as stated indirection definitely not laurel leaves as listed in ingredients. I believe laurel leaves are poisoness

    As good as, or perhaps better than, the story (which, like most translated stories, has such delughtful turns of phrase) are the recipes herein. I'm probably going to try my hand at most of them. They sound delicious.

    sort of weird and the ending is almost extremely depressing, up until the very las two paragraphs of the epilogue

    The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, according to Mademoiselle Aïssatou. So she begins to seduce the man on whom she is crushing by making him irresistible African dishes. But whether or not Bolobolo was able to resist Aïssatou's culinary charms...read and find out ;)

    L'amore passa attraverso il corpo, e il corpo scheletrico, denutrito, ossuto di una giovane nera che cerca di aderire agli ideali dei bianchi (tavola da surf uguale bella donna), non può accogliere l'amore. E allora la conquista dell'uomo amato passa attraverso la riscoperta delle ricette della mamma, e l'inevitabile aumento di peso.I capitoli della seduzione sono intervallati dalle ricette della seduzione, alcune delle quali così interessanti che mi hanno fatto voglia di uscire di casa di corsa e correre al negozio di prodotti africani.L'uomo amato non si rivelerà all'altezza di tanto amore, ma continuerà comunque ad essere nutrito sontuosamente, perché è così che ci si cucina il marito all'africana.

    La signorina Aissatù si muove tra personaggi bizzarri (non ultima la gallina del vicino di casa) e incarna la nevrosi di una nera-bianca parigina costretta a demonizzare il cibo e a rincorrere un'arida magrezza. Almeno finché non si innamora. Per me assolutamente da provare le ricette stregate di Calixthe Beyala..Divertente.

    Una novela que empieza muy bien y que va perdiendo gas. Donde la cocina juega un papel de seducción en la vida amorosa de la protagonista que intenta conquistar el corazón de su guapo vecino a través del arte de cocinar. Estéticamente la novela tiene belleza, pero la historia en sí carece de pasión y de fuerza. Vaya que puede llegar a aburrir, sobre todo hacia el final.

    So great. So funny. So sad.I identified with this story a lot. Reading it felt like everything my mother and female relatives will tell me when I am getting married.The images are rich and the prose is decadent like the food our narrator Aissatou cooks.A great, fun, quick read.

    A short book featuring flavorful descriptions of exotic cuisine. Despite its short length, it wasn't particularly easy for me to read (due in large part to the fact that I am very unfamiliar with African cuisine and African culture.) I liked the story, but I wasn't a big fan of the ending.

    The recipes are hilarious! I wonder whether they are real...?
