For the Culture: Phenomenal Black Women and Femmes in Food: Interviews, Inspiration, and Recipes
Shipping calculated at checkout
Appealing, ambitious, and inspiring, this book salutes cooks, culinary historians, mixologists, farmers, podcasters, and others who preserve, create, and expand Black excellence.
Through profiles and interviews, many accompanied by recipes, Klancy Miller, founder of a journal which is also called For the Culture, links the work of pioneers such as Edna Lewis and Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor with later generations of women like:
- Mashama Bailey
- Jessica Harris
- Vallery Lomas
- Toni Tipton-Martin
- Shannon Mustipher
- Nicole Taylor
- Korsha Wilson
Of course, any such sample omits other significant contributors, of which there are more than fifty. But all of them are well represented here, as Miller is careful to bring their voices to the fore rather than shape their stories to her own vision.
