黑色的食谱和回忆录William Hill橄榄球

20年6月4日A few people messaged me this week asking for black cookbook and food memoir suggestions. So, I went to my bookshelves and I pulled out several — plus a few more I don’t have or have lent out but highly recommend — to share here, plus a little about each.注意:I originally shared it on Smitten Kitchen’s Instagram Stories and several people asked if I could put it at a more permanent url here. This is definitely not an exhaustive list of black cookbook authors, nor does this list every book from these authors. It’s merely what’s on my shelves and a few that currently aren’t that I’ve enjoyed over the years. I am linking to Amazon here because I know many of us begin our book searches there, but at the end I have a plethora of other bookstore resources, black-owned and/or independent.

Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African American Cooking: A Cookbook (Toni Tipton-Martin)

这个令人难以置信的书 - 它在上周赢得了詹姆斯·比尔德奖 - 一看就是和庆祝超越灵魂和南部烹调非洲裔美国人烹调所有的非洲移民的食物的。我所做的饼干中,羽衣甘蓝与玉米面玉米面饺子(更多关于这些很快),我敢肯定的朗姆酒将于明年在这个闷热本周的议程。我买了它去年11月,它出来 - 我就被送进了很多食谱,但他们很少我永远保持的那些;William Hill橄榄球我买我自己的意志的那些几乎总是。

The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks (Toni Tipton-Martin)

Also by Tipton-Martin, she spent years amassing one of the largest private collections of cookbooks by African American authors. This book collects 150 of them. There’s a rare 1827 house servant’s manual but also more modern classics from authors like Edna Lewis and Vertamae Grosvenor, annotated with historical details hoping to give us a view of African-American cooking beyond the “Aunt Jemima” stereotype.


First published in 1976, I know you will love this book. Lewis was a chef and writer who chronicled classic Southern cooking, and her writing is absolutely poetic. Her Busy-Day Cake is both delicious and one of the best cake names out there. Her Pan-Fried Sweet Potatoes are excellent; her Cheese Straws, legendary.

My Soul Looks Back: A Memoir (Jessica B. Harris)

I’ve had the luck to hear Jessica Harris, an orator and culinary historian, speak twice now — first at the Cherry Bombe Jubilee in 2017, and last fall at an event with Les Dames d’Escoffier — and I want you to know if you ever have a chance to hear her speak anywhere, you should buy a ticket immediately because you will leave utterly inspired. Her memoir isn’t specifically food-focused but she talks about growing up in NYC in the 60s when her social circle included (nbd!) Maya Angelou and James Baldwin. You won’t want to put it down.


此外,通过杰西卡·哈里斯,这本书庆祝“非洲美国经验的食品” - chitlins,火腿飞节,和素食主义者重新cipes了。有一个伟大的蔬菜浓汤这里,西瓜咸菜(我丈夫喜欢这些),并且还妈妈的炸鸡配方。

Vegetable Kingdom: The Abundant World of Vegan Recipes (Bryant Terry)

A newer (February of this year) plant-based cookbook with a focus on real food (no “powders or meat substitutes”) with Afro-Asian flavors. I’ve been reading, not cooking from it so far, but I’ve got the Roasted Sweet Potato and Asparagus Po’Boy, Barbecue Carrots with Slow-Cooked White Beans, and the Berbere-Spiced Red Lentils with Creamy Cauliflower bookmarked, how could I not. This is not Terry’s first book (see also: Afro Vegan and more) but it came to my attention after reading an in-depth interview with Terry in a recent newsletter from Alicia Kennedy, who writes about the intersection of food and culture. You can read the interview这里and subscribe for more.


I’m including this book for two reasons. One, there are not enough solo cooking cookbooks and this is a great one. The other reason is that I think Klancy Miller is a great person to follow, if you do not already. She recently founded For the Culture: A magazine celebrating Black women in food and wine, a crowdfunded project I was happy to contribute to, and which you still can on the website — they’re currently accepting submissions for the first issue. Back to Cooking Solo, I haven’t cooked much from it because I’d be forced to share, but in pulling it back down from the shelves, it was clearly a mistake. I’m making myself lamb chops this week and I’m not sharing with anyone, mwahaha. https://amzn.to/2U3UCyN

Black Girl Baking: Wholesome Recipes Inspired by a Soulful Upbringing (Jerelle Guy)

盖伊是美食博客的背后Chocolate For Basil和纽约时报烹饪贡献者。我很喜欢的食谱,她插入整个的回忆位背后的故事 - 她在这样一个令人回味的英国威廉希尔,诗意的方式写。千万不要错过山核桃饼Rugelach,流行饼干(yeasted!),和烤松饼玉米面包。

Notes from a Young Black Chef: A Memoir (Kwame Onwuachi)

I zipped through this book in a few days last summer because I absolutely couldn’t put it down. I haven’t had Onwauchi’s cooking — although the memoir has a very well edited selection of recipes — but it’s pretty clear he could just write for the rest of his life and have a fantastic career. I hear they’re making this into a movie? Starring Lakeith Stanfield from Atlanta? [Fans self]

烹饪基因:一次旅途通过非洲裔美国人的烹饪历史的旧南(迈克尔W. TWITTY)

该是烹饪历史和教育家迈克尔W. TWITTY,其网站是一个史诗般的詹姆斯·比尔德获奖回忆录Aforculinaria。他追溯他的祖先,黑色和白色两种,通过食物从非洲到美洲,在奴役和自由,他补充说真正见识到的谁“拥有”烧烤,灵魂,南方食品的想法。它的迷人和深入。

Carla Hall’s Soul Food: Everyday and Celebration

I don’t need to tell you who Carla Hall is — we’ve been following her all the way since Top Chef — but I know sometimes when people become big enough celebrities, we forget that they might also be amazing writers and cooks. This book should remove any misplaced doubt. Cracked Shrimp with Comeback Sauce. Tomato Pie with Garlic Bread Crust. Poured Caramel Cake. And she’s pretty famous, to say the least, for her Nashville Hot Chicken.

Sweet Home Café Cookbook: A Celebration of African American Cooking

This is a collection of recipes from the cafe at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in DC (which features prominently in Kwame Onwuachi’s memoir as well) and I haven’t cooked from it yet (my loss) but I hear the mac-and-cheese is not to be missed. You don’t have to tell me twice.

Bound to the Fire: How Virginia’s Enslaved Cooks Helped Invent American Cuisine (Kelley Fanto Deetz)

Deetz uses cookbooks, plantations records, and even folkore to take a nunaced look at the lives of enslaved planation cooks before and after emancipation, as well as the foods they created from — from oyster stew, gumbo, and fried fish — that were credit to their white owners. This specifically focuses on Virginia plantations — Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and George Washington’s Mount Vernon which is very and I love it.

The New Way to Cake: Simple Recipes with Exceptional Flavor (Benjamina Ebuehi)

This is a ridiculous story but here we go: This book from the Great British Bake-Off semifinalist was actually pulled down from the stack by my daughter on Mother’s Day. She’s been learning how to write and my mother’s day card read — I couldn’t make this up if I tried — “I LOVE YOU MOMMY NEW WAY TO CAKE BENAJMINA EBUEHI” I guess she was copying a message my husband had shown her how to write and started copying nearby words and it got a little jumbled up and I’m saving it forever. She’s selected the Elderflower and Roasted Strawberry Cake (it’s pink) for my birthday but I am intrigued by the Caramelized Plantain Upside-Down Cake, the Date & Rooibos Loaf (a reader favorite), and the Plum and Black Pepper Cake. Do I have to choose?


对不起,挑逗,但是这不会是直到今年6月16日。(然而,预订单是一个非常重要的途径。支持书籍。)这引起了我的注意通过这种味觉最近的一篇文章,“新世界索尔多并不是什William Hill橄榄球么新鲜事。”我很喜欢,它看起来超出了酵母作为一个脾气暴躁,崇拜的面包在当地的三明治店,并提醒我们,从技术上来说,“大约3700 BC和在19世纪的商业酵母的发明之间的任何发酵的面包可能被索尔多认为太“。

In Bibi’s Kitchen (Hawa Hassan and Julia Turshen)

This book also isn’t out yet but I know it will be worth the wait until October. (And I repeat, preorders are a very integral part of a book’s success) I’m looking looking forward to this collection of recipes from grandmothers in eight eastern African nations which were considered the backbone of the spice trade (think: black pepper and vanilla, so central to SK cooking). Also, I’m Team Grandma Cooking, always.
