Author Toni Tipton-Martin in the book Jubilee takes us on a journey of the historical culinary significance from the shores of Africa to the roots of African American heritage cooking. This cookbook's homage to the author's 400+ vast collections of delectable recipes show African cuisine's parallel significance and survival before the Middle Passage. The author shows how many familiar dishes had evolved into our present-day meals and how African and African-American cooking historically influenced our national treasure cuisines. - Denine Rogers, MS, RDN, LD, FAND, Past Chair of NOBIDAN (National Organization of Blacks in Dietetics and Nutrition), Integrative & Functional Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Owner of Living Healthy

Before reading Jubilee, I was not aware of the rich cultural history that resulted in so much of the cuisine that we enjoy today. – Lisa Wright 2/22
I know. I know. 5 stars, but this book is just delicious. The anthropologist/chef in me is absolutely thrilled. - Gojes, 2019
Although I live in the far North, I am aware of Ms. Tipton-Martin’s reputation as a scholar of African American culinary history…I learned something on every page. As a Caucasian, so much of the culinary history and its backstories were, I am sorry to say, new to me. - Mary C., Amazon 2019
