"Everything about this book is correct except the title. Anyone with a taste bud in their mouth should follow these recipes and open their mouth." - Maya Angelou

"The opening of Sweet Potatoes was a milestone event in the city's efforts to revitalize Trade Street. Sweet Potatoes acted as a catalyst for the tremendous success of Winston-Salem's Arts District. In the few short years of its existence, Sweet Potatoes has become an icon for our community and is an attraction known throughout the state." - Allen Joines, mayor of Winston-Salem since 2001

"In the heart of Winston-Salem's Downtown Arts District, Sweet Potatoes restaurant greets its clientele with an atmosphere and cuisine that mirror the lively mix of shops, studios, and galleries surrounding it." - Janet C. Pittard, Our State magazine

"From the very first moment I met Viviàn and Stephanie and was lifted by the kitchen's aroma, I was in love. Having produced the film Fried Green Tomatoes, and being something of an expert on their preparation throughout the South, I was enthralled with Stephanie's delicious recipe. Her FGT are crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside. They have full flavor and are the best I have tasted anywhere outside of Idgie and Ruth's Whistle Stop Café. However, you need to try the Fried Chicken and the Banana Pudding. They are a rustic Cordon Bleu education in themselves-simply amazing. Our family saves them for special occasions." - Jordan Kerner, dean of the School of Filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Pub. Date: August 1, 2011
