Black Power Kitchen
Where to buy
Black Owned Shops (US ONLY):
A celebration of Black culture and an indispensable cookbook, Black Power Kitchen is the first cookbook from Ghetto Gastro, a culinary collective that uses food as a platform to spark conversation about larger issues surrounding inclusion, race, access, and how food—and knowing how to cook—provides freedom and power.
Black Power Kitchen arms readers with 75 recipes, more than 150 photographs, and thought-provoking contributions on topics ranging from the work of Black mothers to the importance of resistance and rebellion.
This is Ghetto Gastro’s manifesto, reframing the idea of “ghetto” as a reclamation of all that is good in the Black community, centering food as a means of both nourishment and advancement. Written with James Beard Award–winning writer Osayi Endolyn and with gorgeous artwork and a highly visual design, Ghetto Gastro’s Black Power Kitchen is a powerful introductory book from important voices in the food and design worlds.
