African American contributions to our nation's culinary culture are foundational and ongoing.

When Nicole Taylor became the executive food editor at Thrillist in 2019, she was one of the few Black women to lead a mainstream food publication and the first in digital media. An Athens, Georgia, native living in Brooklyn, New York, her Up South Cookbook plays with classic Southern recipes.
Each week we share the story of an African American culinary hero from our Legacy Quilt, telling the often overlooked history of the countless Black farmers, chefs, food and drink producers, who have laid the foundation for American food culture. The Quilt is part of our current exhibition, African/American: Making the Nation's Table.
