East Africa is a region of contrasts and home to literally hundreds of ethnic and tribal groups, who speak a variety of languages and have many different religions. One aspect that many of these groups have in common, however, is the kind of meals eaten, which for most people are based around a starchy staple such as a grain or root vegetable dish, accompanied by thick, flavourful soups and stews and speciality breads. The starchy part of the meal is commonly rolled into a hollowed ball with the fingers of the right hand and then used to scoop up other foods. Because cutlery is rare it is important for the hands to be cleansed before the meal begins and in many countries hand washing both before and after meals is a ritual. Before the meal starts a jug and bowl are brought in and water is poured over the diners' hands, which are held over the bowl. A towel is passed around to dry the hands and the same thing is done again at the end of the meal. Entertaining guests is seen as a great honour in many East African households and extra food is often prepared just in case any unexpected diners arrive. Recipes are not generally written down, but are passed on by word of mouth or simply created by the cook by experimenting with what ingredients are available. East African cuisine is sadly often overlooked outside the region, with many people believing that it consists only of starchy tasteless stodge! Hopefully this book will help dispel that myth and show that instead there are dozens of creative, richly-flavoured traditional dishes made from an exciting array of exotic and nutritious ingredients. As all the basic ingredients are plant-based the recipes are eminently suitable for vegans and with many of the dishes extremely quick and easy to prepare they should also appeal to vegans who have little time to cook.

Blending science and comedy, Browehs Before Yahwehs: A Secular Guide to Forgiveness, discusses how debate and ridicule impedes the progress of secular thought while giving an alternative strategy to changing religious minds. The book uses a postmodern narrative to illuminate forgiveness through satirizing the "just-so stories" espoused by religion and evolutionary psychology. By dwelling on the past and ancestors, religion and evolutionary psychology minimizes humankind's potential to create meaning in the present for a better future.Discussion between secular people and religious individuals turns toxic when the only conversation on the subject of religion is debate and/or ridicule. The book contextualizes religions' attempts to explain forgiveness and advocates for understanding of scientifically illiterate people throughout history, who probably suffered from PTSD. Science can clarify the imperfect examples of forgiveness in religious texts and help to give people what they want in life: social connection."Just because an individual has the capacity to grasp the moment of The Big Bang, the slow gradual nature of evolution, or the ins and outs of Jaime Lee Curtis' digest system because of Activia yogurt, did not mean that he or she has an iota of scientific insight regarding forgiveness." Each of the book's six chapters outlines a different aspect of the forgiveness process by introducing pop-culture-themed neurological metaphors. The book gives the reader a humorous understanding of the daily practice of forgiveness as an effort to create meaning in the present by abandoning sentimental stories of the past.
