This is one of my very favorite cookbooks of the last few years. Literally everything in it looks great. I want to cook something on every page. And I can attest that the Cornbread Dressing and the Pureed Parsnips are DIVINE (and all of my relatives on Thanksgiving agree!). More than simply a collection of wonderful recipes, it is a repository of African American culinary culture. James Beard Award-winner Tipton-Martin has spent much of her life tracing the history of talented, professional black cooks obscured by stereotypes. Here, she collects and updates over 100 recipes from her collection of over 400 historical cookbooks. Get it for the recipes, keep it for the salvaged history and memory, and enjoy passages like, “How did macaroni and cheese get so black?” Spoiler: Thomas Jefferson’s Paris-trained enslaved chef, James Hemings. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
