While Entertaining publications highlight the Black food and beverage producers, chefs, home cooks, and food enthusiasts whose stories have been marginalized and misrepresented in mainstream food media. The While Entertaining team works to provide us with new perspectives, fresh flavors, and thoughtful anecdotes to bring to our dinner tables. It is their hope that the stories and recipes shared will help foster a greater appreciation for diverse flavors, history, and traditions.
Volume Two of While Entertaining is a collection of reflections and recipes from foodies around the U.S. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest, and political uncertainty, cooking and journaling became a form of self-care for many. The people we connect with in Volume Two gave us access to what they were thinking, feeling, and cooking throughout the past year. We hope these stories and recipes will help you bring more delicious food and thought-provoking conversation to your table.
