On this week’s episode of the Fine Cooking Podcast, our editors chat with Toni Tipton-Martin: culinary journalist, food historian, and activist. They discuss her new book, Jubilee, and her experience covering the history of African American cooking.
Toni Tipton Martin was the first African-American food editor of a major American newspaper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
She is the author of The Jemimah Code, an anthology of more than 150 cookbooks by African American authors, spanning two hundred years, as well as the cookbook Jubilee, which aims to broaden awareness of African-American cooking beyond soul food.
The store where Toni describes tracking down her prized 1st edition is Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks, a legendary antiquarian cookbook store in New York
