"Vibration Cooking" was first published in 1970, not long after the term soul food gained common use. While critics were quick to categorize her as a proponent of soul food, Smart-Grosvenor wanted to keep the discussion of her cookbook/memoir focused on its message of food as a source of pride and validation of black womanhood."

MEDIA REVIEWS

"You will learn from Vibration Cooking something about the anger, pride, generosity, and will of one black woman. Vertamae's autobiography-travelogue-cookbook has a rare distinction: There's something in it for everybody--of either sex or any color."--"Washington Post"


"You will learn from "Vibration Cooking" something about the anger, pride, generosity, and will of one black woman. Vertamae s autobiography-travelogue-cookbook has a rare distinction: There s something in it for everybody of either sex or any color." "Washington Post""


"The fact that "Vibration Cooking" is now in its fourth reprinting bespeaks both its popularity and its necessity. The current scholarly interest in women s studies, African American studies, African diasporic studies, and food studies provides no better time for reacquainting readers with Vertamae s work. Her book is no less important now than when she first penned it over forty years ago. . . . Black food is more than kitchen scraps; black women are more than mammy figures, and black culture is more than a monolith. . . . I like this book!" Psyche Williams-Forson, from the foreword"
