Jun 15, 2022

Juneteenth is upon us. For those who aren’t familiar with the history, Juneteenth is a holiday to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. On today’s podcast episode, we chat with James Beard Award-nominated food writer, master home cook, and producer, Nicole A. Taylor about all things Juneteenth and her upcoming cookbook, Watermelon and Redbirds: A Cookbook for Juneteenth and Black Celebrations. This is the first-ever cookbook centering Juneteenth so we were thrilled to get a chance to discuss it with Nicole.


In This Episode We’ll Cover:

  • The history behind Juneteenth & why it matters
  • Nicole's favorite spins on traditional Black recipes
  • Black food traditions
  • Thoughts on watermelon and other foods with a traumatizing past
  • & MORE
