Jubilee – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our giveaway open to US/CA to win a copy of Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African-American Cooking by Toni Tipton-Martin from the publisher. EYB is providing one copy outside US/CA worldwide.

Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African-American Cooking by Toni Tipton-Martin is a celebration of two hundred years of African-American cooking. The author’s vast research is shared in the stories and recipes developed by the black professional culinary class from butlers to ranch hands to classically trained chefs. She gathered over 400 cookbooks written by black authors some dating back to 1827. Half of those titles were reborn in her award-winning The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks.

Jubilee pays homage to the cooks and chefs who have for centuries honored food and traditions. Toni is a story-teller and her words are a joy to read as this book is a gift to all of us who love food. Filled with a history we all must soak up and rich with great food, it is sure to be another award winner. The book has made my best books of 2019 and has received many prestigious mentions including the best of the best list.

I’ve made the Pork chops with rich caper-lemon sauce and I don’t think I ever need another recipe for pork chops again. These chops were tender and scrumptious. Even a great cook can screw up pork chops but there is no failing with this recipe. I have dozens of recipes on my list including her Extra-light buttermilk cornbread, Sweet potato salad, and her Caramel cake. Buy the book for the recipes but treasure it for the countless souls before us who have shaped our culinary world.
