There are many exciting opportunities and challenges that our food and agriculture systems face over the coming year. And it’s more important than ever that each of us finds the unique ways we can use our skills to bring change.
Cooking is one of the most powerful ways we can make a difference in the food system every day. By using ethically produced ingredients, supporting local farmers and producers, and eating seasonally, we can build equity and ecology from the ground up.
This week, Food Tank is highlighting 19 of our favorite recent cookbooks that focus on food justice and sustainability.
Some of these cookbooks have also been featured in our monthly Cook With Food Tank series, where we spotlight a recipe or two each month from our favorite chefs. You can find a recipe for Nigerian black-eyed pea fritters from Toni Tipton-Martin’s Jubilee, a celebration of hundreds of years of Black cooking, and a delicious seasonal squash risotto from Beth Dooley’s Perennial Kitchen, which centers seasonal and local ideas. And while you’re at it, be sure to share photos with us using @FoodTank!
For even more inspiration to make a difference in the kitchen, here’s our full list of 19 cookbooks that guide us through the food system with bright flavors, personal stories, and rich traditional knowledge:
