In the aftermath of the racial turmoil and shake-up at Bon Appetit
https://www.chowhound.com/post/bon-ap... , Epicurious has released this reading list. It's been circulating through social justice circles for the past month and the general opinion is that this is a good selection.

" . . . As part of the work we need to do to make Epicurious a truly inclusive publication, my colleagues and I are using these lists to educate ourselves on racism broadly. We also want to educate ourselves specifically about anti-Black racism in the food space, so we’ve sought out books that cover the intersection of race and food. A list of these books is below. At the end of the list, we’ve added some cookbooks we love by Black authors, in the hopes that you’ll add some of these to your shopping cart as well."

A Reading List For Learning About Race and Food

Here are the books we're using to educate ourselves on racism in America as it relates to farming, cooking, grocery shopping, and beyond.
