Cookbook Club




Join us for a Cookbook Club this spring filled with good food and conversation with foodie and amateur chef, Stephanie Rose and your community. This is a potluck-style event with every attendee choosing a recipe from the cookbook to share with the group. After your spot is secured, sign up is closed, and closer to the date we will contact you via email (preferred) or phone to ask what your first choice recipe will be.

Throughout her career, Toni Tipton-Martin has shed new light on the history, breadth, and depth of African American cuisine. She’s introduced us to black cooks, some long forgotten, who established much of what’s considered to be our national cuisine. After all, if Thomas Jefferson introduced French haute cuisine to this country, who do you think actually cooked it?In Jubilee, Tipton-Martin brings these masters into our kitchens. Through recipes and stories, we cook along with these pioneering figures, from enslaved chefs
 to middle- and upper-class writers and entrepreneurs. With more than 100 recipes, from classics such as Sweet Potato BiscuitsSeafood GumboButtermilk Fried Chicken, and Pecan Pie with Bourbon to lesser-known but even more decadent dishes like Bourbon & Apple Hot ToddiesSpoon Bread, and Baked Ham Glazed with ChampagneJubilee presents techniques, ingredients, and dishes that show the roots of African American cooking–deeply beautiful, culturally diverse, fit for celebration.
