Bryant Terry is a renowned chef and cookbook author and culinary historian. His books highlight vegan approaches to the African diaspora of food, exploring the culinary wealth of ingredients, techniques and recipes that have spread from Africa to the Caribbean, and all over the Americas. The decolonization of "soul food" is an integral part of his agenda.

There will be a lot of improvising going on in the kitchen, as always! We will start with these ideas as springboards:

Texas caviar on homemade sourdough toast

Caribbean pumpkin soup: Spicy flavors Jamaican abound in this soup as chili peppers and pumkin meet allspice garnished with pumpkin fritters.


Apple Cornbread
apple smoked tempeh with roasted pureed butternut squash, wrapped in collard leaf, smothered in barbecuse sauce.
roasted okra

pecan chocolate bourbon pie
Banana Chcocolate coconut ice cream
