Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African American Cooking by Toni Tipton-Martin
Toni Tipton-Martin is a James Beard-award winning author who has written extensively about African American cookbooks and chefs. Jubilee captures fascinating historical detail alongside mouth-watering recipes, and highlights the black cooks who have been left out of the mainstream understanding of American cuisine. This book values the contributions of enslaved people, plantation cooks, African American cooking school attendees, culinary giants like Edna Lewis, Top Chef contestants, and more. Did you know an African American chef came up with the idea that led to Bisquick? Did you know that an enslaved chef named James Hemings brought French fries and macaroni to America? I read this book straight through as the riveting piece of food writing it was, and can't wait to return to it again and again--to see the light it shines on the outsize impact African Americans have had on the story of American cooking, and to try out the recipes, one by one. —Bethany Strout, Director of Buying
