The Best American Food Writing 2020
Edited by J. Kenji López-Alt (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; $16.99)

I have worked in food publishing for almost 30 years and, regrettably, have been ignorant of many of the contributions of people of color outside of high-profile Black chefs such as Edna Lewis and Leah Chase.

These perspectives are long overdue, and so welcome.
