On the Menu: The Jemima Code and California CuisineMaggie Borden
September 14, 2016
Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at JBF.
Beard on Books, 12:00 P.M.
JBF Award Winner Toni Tipton Martin, The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks
Toni Tipton-Martin snagged a 2016 James Beard Award for The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks, her masterful exploration of the contributions of African-American women to our nation's culinary landscape. Pages after pages of reproduced archival materials and recipes upend the historical stereotype of black women in the kitchen as illiterate "Aunt Jemimas," proving how instrumental these oft-ignored chefs were to our dinners and diets.
