Toni Tipton-Martin is an award-winning food and nutrition journalist using cultural heritage and cooking for social change. As Editor in Chief of Cook’s Country Magazine, Toni shares the stories behind America’s favorite dishes. Her books celebrate the professional skills and kitchen wisdom of invisible black cooks as culinary role models from whom everyone can learn.
“...and like Jubilee Day celebrations marking the emancipation of enslaved Americans, our culinary jubilee is also about liberation and resilience. Our cooking, our cooks, shall be free from caricature and stereotype. We have earned the freedom to cook with creativity and joy.”
