Expanding the idea of “Black Food” with chef Bryant Terry

Bryant Terry, the chef and author of “Vegetable Kingdom” in which he shares his passion for vegan cooking, gives Salon a preview of his latest, “Black Food: Stories, Art, and Recipes from Across the African Diaspora.” “Black Food” is a collection of recipes, essays and art exploring Black foodways within America and around the world, and the debut release from Terry’s 4 Color Books imprint.

“I wanted the focus on the book to be about our joy, our agency, our magic, our brilliance,” Terry said. “I wanted it to be a conversation that we were having with each other and inviting the world to look in, but not being overly concerned about the white gaze, not feeling like we needed to translate things for outsiders.”
