Curated Cuisine is a monthly series examining all things edible, from the chefs cooking the food to the writers reviewing the recipes. Meet the people shaping the food industry, both local and national and enjoy a post-show bite inspired by the conversation.
Join us for a conversation with James Beard Award-winning culinary historian Jessica B. Harris, author of twelve critically acclaimed books documenting the foods and foodways of the African Diaspora including, "High on the Hog: A Culinary Journey from Africa to America," which inspired the 2021 Netflix docuseries of the same name. The series has been renewed for a second season slated for late 2022.
Harris will be in conversation with Tamika Francis, founder of Food & Folklore, an organization that pays homage to global food traditions through pop-up dining experiences, diasporic culinary classes and storytelling.
Copies of "High on the Hog" will be sold from our bookstore partner Brookline Booksmith. Harris will sign books after and in-person attendees will enjoy a special bite following the conversation.
This event is co-produced by Boston University Metropolitan College Programs in Food & Wine.
