Working on my next book on African American presidential chefs.

I’m hard at work on my next book, tentatively titled The President’s Kitchen Cabinet: A Hidden History of African American Presidential Chefs. Look for it to be published by the University of North Carolina Press by the spring of 2017.

If you know someone who has cooked in the White House kitchen, or you’re related to someone with that experience who is now deceased, and either of you is willing to be interviewed . . . holler!

  1. Greetings,
    I have been reading your phenomenal book and a friend of mine has a weekly blog radio station who asked me if I would like to be interviewed on her show this Wednesday, September 8, 2014 8:30 EST. The Topic:

    “Black Townships that became Cities in the US & Reparations and Its Effect on Black Reconstruction, and How Africans Transported their Food to the Diaspora.” We love to investigate topics such the energy of food and sustainable agriculture, and how that influences our wellness and the quality of our experiences.

    I immediately thought of several friends who have written books around these topics. You are one of the few I know of who have done such in-depth research around the origins of soul food and how it was transported to America. I have done a little because of my festival. But no where near the work you have done.

    So to make this long story shorter, I thought of your possibly being a part of this show. Let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks for your diligent work!

    Nobantu Ankoanda, Ed.D – Educator and Former Principal of several community based schools in California. Now reside in Georgia. I do the festival in CA and GA.
