  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #1
    *Starred Review* James Beard Award–winning culinary journalist and community activist Tipton-Martin spent decades collecting and researching more than 200 years of Black cookbooks before compiling that work into an anthology (The Jemima Code, 2015) and pop-up exhibit which traveled across North America. This cookbook embodies that research and honors the ancestors who crafted and honed those recipes. Tipton-Martin's knowledge and understanding of the caricatures and stereotypes so rampant throughout this history allow for a nuanced, respectful, loving view of the legacies of the cooks, chefs, and food experts she cites. The depth of context provided here is unusual but both appropriate and necessary today. Recipes—appetizers, breads, soups, salads, sides, vegetables, main dishes, desserts, and beverages— include a paragraph or two about each dishes' history and Tipton-Martin's process for the version presented here. Easy to follow and elegantly precise, it is clear that these recipes are the result of years of devoted artistry. Large color photographs bring the creations to life, and historical recipes included alongside many of the entries contain citations for the originator, source, and date. Indexed by both recipe and name, the rich detail and thorough yet exceedingly readable historical perspective make this cookbook unique and valuable. Recommended for all public library collections.
