The Rise by Marcus S.Regular price $38.00
Harlem's own Marcus Samuelsson has published a book, in our opinion, that dives into the multi-layer complexity of "Black Cooking or Soul Food" and gives overdue shine to top Black chefs and their social and culinary contributions.
In The Rise, chef, author, and television star Marcus Samuelsson gathers together an unforgettable feast of food, culture, and history to highlight the diverse deliciousness of Black cooking today. Driven by a desire to fight against bias, reclaim Black culinary traditions, and energize a new generation of cooks, Marcus shares his own journey alongside 150 recipes in honor of dozens of top chefs, writers, and activists—with stories exploring their creativity and influence.
Black cooking has always been more than “soul food,” with flavors tracing to the African continent, to the Caribbean, all over the United States, and beyond.
