Cookbooks & Food Writing

Jubilee by Toni Tipton-Martin

African American cooking is almost always covered as soul food, and yet its history is much richer, more varied, and deeper than that one part of it. In the hands of Toni Tipton-Martin, author of the essential The Jemima Code, the history of this food unfolds as one of skill and ingenuity, adaptation and inspiration. “Equal parts historical highlight reel and cookbook, Jubilee captures centuries’ worth of joy, pain, and effort from Black chefs across the diaspora and distills them into recipes that carefully guide and educate.” —Bon Appetit

The Food of Sichuan by Fuchsia Dunlop

“I’ve been cooking and studying recipes for 20 years, but I could spend the next 10 with Fuchsia Dunlop’s The Food of Sichuan—an updated version of her seminal 2003 book, Land of Plenty—and I’d learn something new every single day. Dunlop’s scholarly expertise is tempered by the clarity of her writing, and she’s actually got me thinking I can make numbing-and-hot dried beef, fish-fragrant cold chicken, and traditional dan dan noodles. This book reminded me of how little I know and made me thankful that experts still exist.” —Bon Appetit
