Toques in Black: The Extraordinary Diversity of Black Chefs

by Battman

from the publisher

Toques In Black: A Celebration of Black Chefs is a cookbook with recipes and stories about growing up and the successes that have come from what at times seems like insurmountable odds. With photos by the award-winning photographer Battman, this is a book to get excited about. Sales of the book will help fund The Chef’s Connection Line Cook Program, a free training and job placement program for newcomers to the culinary industry.

"Toques in Black was a year and a half long project and thousands of miles that took me across the country to photograph the dishes and record the stories of 101 Black Chefs. A group that is under estimated and gets very little attention for all of the wonderful work they do. So much so that I didn’t think I would have enough chefs to fill a book. Well, I could have filled 100 books. Here are some of the dishes that could stand up to any of the best known and celebrated chefs." - Battman
