Restaurants are reopening, so this article caught our eye this week: How to lower your coronavirus risk while eating out: Restaurant advice from an infectious disease expert via The Conversation
In What’s for Dinner this week, Marisa’s having Pittsburg style beans and greens
In How’d You Make That, Joy walks you through her first attempt at vegan ice cream (Patreon members: You’ll find this in the favorite recipes file!)
We have a conversation about the lack of Black cookbook author’s, especially in the canning and preserving arena. When she asked herself, “Where are the canning books by Black authors?” This is what Marisa found in her book collection:
- The Noma Guide to Fermentation by @david_zilber.
- Edna Lewis’s In Pursuit of Flavor (generous canning chapter.)
- Celebrating our Mothers’ Kitchens
So she bought some new books:
- The Up South Cookbook by @foodculturist
- On the Side, Hot Stuff, and The Welcome Table by @drjessicabharris
- Field Peas to Foie Gras by @chefjenniferbooker
- Jubilee by @tonitiptonmartin
- The Cooking Gene by @thecookinggene
- Sweet Home Cafe Cookbook from @nmaahc
Joy wants to mention some Black women she admires in the plant-based space:
Jenne Claiborne of Sweet Potato Soul
Tracye McQuirter, By Any Greens Necessary.com and Ageless Vegan/10,000 Black Vegan Women program
In and What We’re Loving this week, it’s the elderflower concentrate from Ikea.
