Toni Tipton-Martin
The Jemima Code
 

An engaging visual history of African American cooks, The Jemima Code features larger-than-life images of black women at work in the kitchens of slave and sharecropper cabins and shotgun houses throughout the South. These photographs, which have been selected from Toni Tipton-Martin’s upcoming photo album and cookbook, The Jemima Code: A Gallery of Great Cooks Share Their Secrets, cement the women’s legacies and contributions to American cuisine.
