Helen and I straight up stole this recipe from ABC Kitchen, where Dan Kluger marinates and roasts his carrots in a zippy pop of orange, lemon, thyme, garlic, red pepper flakes and a generous dusting of cumin. It’s all served up with avocado, a handful of pea shoots or sprouts, a few hits of creme fraiche and a shower of sesame and sunflower seeds. Yum. It’s so very springy.

The full recipe is available here from Food 52.

New African Fashion by Helen Jennings

From Africa-inspired to African-made, this guide is the first to celebrate a new wave of fashion designers who are emerging on the global stage. Ever since the late 1960s when Yves Saint Laurent and Paco Rabanne presented African-inspired collections, the textiles, details, and colors of Africa have moved into the realm of high fashion. In the past few years, young designers from the continent itself have emerged as people to watch in the fashion world.

Helen Jennings, editor of award-winning ARISE magazine, offers in this book a brief history of African fashion, beauty and style, follows its influence on modern designers, and spotlights the best designers, photographers, and models from across the continent and the African diaspora.
