Cookbook author Jessica B. Harris has spent much of her life researching the food and foodways of the African Diaspora. High on the Hog is the culmination of years of her work, and the result is an engaging history of African American cuisine. Harris takes the reader on a harrowing journey from Africa across the Atlantic to America, tracking the trials that the people and the food have undergone along the way. From chitlins and ham hocks to fried chicken and vegan soul, Harris celebrates the delicious and restorative foods of the African American experience and details how each came to form such an important part of African American culture, history, and identity. Although the story of African cuisine in America begins with slavery, High on the Hog ultimately chronicles a history of triumph and survival.--From publisher description.… (mer)

A student handed this to me- he'd only read it 1/2 way through but thought it was great. The best parts were in the first half, so I told him that was the case. Harris traces the foodways of the Africans that were shipped to and later emigrated to the United States. Many chefs were African American and influenced Southern food to a large degree. The stories are interesting and chilling and a compelling look back over the country's history. ( )

A culinary Journey from Africa to America
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
Harris's detailed history traces the influence of African cuisine to the United States. When African slaves were brought to America, they brought with them their own foods, cooking techniques, and food rituals, which have become a part of American cuisine, specifically in the south. Harris focuses on several foods that have become an important part of African American culture and identity, such as okra, watermelon, black-eyed peas, chitlins, and fried chicken. A number of talented African American cooks, from slaves of large plantations to cooks for the presidents, are profiled. Readers interested in this topic may also want to check out Soul Food by Adrian Miller. (From my book, Food Lit: A Readers' Guide to Epicurean Nonfiction by Melissa Brackney Stoeger) ( )

Jessica Harris' culinary exploration of Africa and African diaspora is both readable and informative - a real pleasure to read. A few recipes are tucked away at the back of the book, and though I haven't yet tried them, I look forward to cooking a few soon. It reminded me a bit of Reay Tanahill's culinary histories - Harris recognizes that food history incorporates every aspect of the human experience, from economics to social issues, geography, agriculture, and more. In my opinion, this is food history as it should be done. A greatly enjoyable read from a fellow alumna of Bryn Mawr! ( )
