The Rise is here! I worked with noted chef and TV host Marcus Samuelsson on this extraordinary celebration of Black food figures in a cookbook that highlights the African diaspora and its indelible contributions to American food culture. Featuring 26 profiles of chefs, storytellers, and activists, plus over 150 recipes, The Rise honors the traditions, memories, achievements, and creativity of African American food culture and its authors. The book is available October 27. You can pre-order it now.
