The reader should sense the writer's brain-to-fingertip-trained instincts going back to parents and grandparents and families of hard-to-please food lovers. When it comes to the realm of current African-American cookbooks, this test is especially useful in telling the genuine from the phony.

Twenty-three years ago, a discordant experience redirected Sylvia Woods in her musical education and because of it, she's been playing a happy harp ever since. A student of piano and flute since the age of 6, Woods said she "absolutely hated" her piano teacher when she began music studies at the University of Redlands in 1969. So she switched to the harp.
