Includes index.
Introduction -- Next: Where Black food is headed: chefs and recipes on the cutting edge, and who's got next -- Remix: Black cooking integrates many cultures and adapts to different ingredients, methods, and geographies -- Migration: The influence of the American South-- the Great Migration and beyond -- Legacy: Old and new journeys from Africa to the Americas and stories of Black figures in food reclaiming their history -- Origin: A pantry of ingredients, techniques, and recipes relating to the African diaspora.
It is long past time to recognize Black excellence in the culinary world the same way it has been celebrated in the worlds of music, sports, literature, film, and the arts. Black cooks and creators have led American culture forward with indelible contributions of artistry and ingenuity from the start, but Black authorship has been consistently erased from the story of American food. Now, in The Rise, chef, author, and television star Marcus Samuelsson gathers together an unforgettable feast of food, culture, and history to highlight the diverse deliciousness of Black cooking today. Driven by a desire to fight against bias, reclaim Black culinary traditions, and energize a new generation of cooks, Marcus shares his own journey alongside 150 recipes in honor of dozens of top chefs, writers, and activists--with stories exploring their creativity and influence.-- Publisher's description.
