Description

In HOMAGE, Chris Scott tells the remarkable story of his family over  seven generations via comforting dishes and vivid narratives: From his enslaved ancestors to his great-grandfather, who migrated to  Pennsylvania after the Emancipation Proclamation, to his own childhood in Amish country, and, ultimately, his successful restaurant career in Philadelphia and New York City.

In this tribute to those who came  before him, Chris Scott shares 100 dishes born of a unique blend of  Southern, German, and Dutch cuisines, including Chicken Fried Steak with  Sassafras Country Gravy, Charred Radicchio Salad with Roasted Grapes  and Shaved Amish Cheddar, and the ultimate Whoopie Pies.

Stunning  photography evokes the rich history of these distinct cultures. HOMAGE  is a must-have for home cooks who love JUBILEE and Carla Hall, who enjoy  soul flavors or Midwestern food, or who are drawn to cookbooks with  vivid storytelling, a sense of place, and a new point of view.

UNEXPLORED  FOODWAY: One of the many unexplored foodways in the African diaspora,  Amish soul food is a novel cuisine in the publishing world.

HOMAGE  is a celebration of Black culture and food, and an exploration of a  culinary region—one that has never before been highlighted in a  cookbook.

…AND YET THIS IS A FAMILIAR CUISINE: The Great  Migration from the South in the decades following the Civil War,  combined with the strong influence of Dutch, German, and Scandinavian  settlers over a wide swath of the United States, from New York and  Pennsylvania deep into the Midwestern states, makes the recipes in the  book new variations of familiar dishes. From collard greens to spätzle,  country fried steak to German chocolate donuts, this is recognizable,  delicious food that will resonate with anyone who enjoys Southern, soul,  and German, Dutch, or Scandinavian cuisine.
