Summary:
In two of the most renowned and historic venues in Harlem, Alexander Smalls and JJ Johnson dreamed up the Afro-Asian-American flavor profile. Braiding together the foods of the African diaspora and Asian influences with a distinctly New York sensibility, they present here for the first time more than one hundred recipes that go beyond just one place, taking you, in words from The New Yorker, "somewhere between Harlem and heaven."
