HOMAGE is a first-of-its-kind cookbook that celebrates a vastly under-explored foodway in the African diaspora: Amish soul food. Via comforting recipes and vivid narrative, renowned chef Chris Scott tells the remarkable story of his family over seven generations—from his enslaved ancestors to his great-grandfather, who migrated to Pennsylvania after the Emancipation Proclamation, to his own childhood in Amish country, and, ultimately, his successful restaurant career in Philadelphia and New York City. Here Chris shares 100 dishes born of a unique blend of Southern, German, and Dutch cuisines, including Chicken Fried Steak with Sassafras Country Gravy, Charred Radicchio Salad with Roasted Grapes and Shaved Amish Cheddar, and the ultimate Whoopie Pies. With stunning photography that evokes the rich history of these distinct cultures, HOMAGE is a must-have for home cooks who love JUBILEE and Carla Hall, who enjoy soul flavors or Midwestern food, or who are drawn to cookbooks with vivid storytelling, a sense of place, and a new point of view.
