Reviews

"Toni Tipton-Martin, I thank you for writing Jubilee. . . . Your graceful writing beckons, your immaculate historical research illuminates, your recipes are ones I will be cooking . . . for years to come. I let out an audible gasp upon seeing the beautiful black hands gracing Jerrelle Guy's lovely photographs, those hands as much a visual reminder of what has been missing for so long from American culinary culture as they hold promise for a possible, more equitable future."--Adeena Sussman, The New York Times Style Magazine, "The Cookbooks You Need for 2020"
