For the culture : phenomenal Black women and femmes in food : interviews, inspiration, and recipes / Klancy Miller ; photography by Kelly Marshall ; illustrations by Sarah Madden.

Miller, Klancy, (author.).


"Chef and writer Klancy Miller found her own way by trial and error--as a pastry chef, recipe developer, author, and founder of For the Culture magazine--but what if she had known then what she knows now? What if she had known the extraordinary women profiled within these pages--entrepreneurs, chefs, food stylists, mixologists, historians, influencers, hoteliers, and more--and learned from their stories? Like Leah Penniman, a farmer using Afro-Indigenous methods to restore the land and feed her community; Ashtin Berry, an activist, sommelier, and mixologist creating radical change in the hospitality industry and beyond; or Sophia Roe, a TV host and producer showcasing the inside stories behind today's food systems. Toni Tipton-Martin, Mashama Bailey, Carla Hall, Nicole Taylor, Dr. Jessica B. Harris . . . In this gorgeous volume these luminaries and more share the vision that drives them, the mistakes they made along the way, advice for the next generation, and treasured recipes--all accompanied by stunning original illustrated portraits and vibrant food photography. In addition, Miller shines a light on the matriarchs who paved the way for today's tastemakers--Edna Lewis, B. Smith, Leah Chase, Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor, and Lena Richard. These collective profiles are a one-of-a-kind oral history of a movement, captured in real time, and indispensable for anyone passionate about food"-- Provided by publisher.
