The complete illustrated history of Black barbecue in America, from its creation and evolution in the agricultural South to its widespread popularity today, as retraced by the craft’s most ardent preservationist.

The Craft and Legends of the Pit Through the Generations
by Dr. Howard Conyers
Ten Speed Press, March 2023

The descendant of farmers and barbecuing masters, Dr. Howard Conyers is a structural dynamicist at NASA by day and a preserver of barbecue history after hours. In THE UNTOLD STORY OF UNITED STATES’ BARBECUE, Dr. Conyers details the real and complete history of barbecue in America, tracing its roots back to the enslaved people who are believed to have brought the practice to the American South to today’s Black experts all across the country. Dr. Conyers shares oral histories and photographs from Black whole-animal barbecue cooks from across the South and describes the traditional methods of roasting hogs and other animals over pits in the ground—a practice that dates back well over 400 years. The history of Black barbecue has never before been fully documented by someone born into the craft, who has uncovered and pieced together the fascinating first-person narratives that finally tell the complete cultural story.

Trained as an aerospace engineer at Duke University, Dr. Howard Conyers is a structural dynamicist at NASA by day—but his second passion is researching and documenting the history of African American barbecue, farming, and foodways. He has been featured in the New York Times, Southern Living, Bon Appétit, The Post and Courier, BBQ Beat, and many more publications, and has been a regular speaker at universities, foundations, and events.

From human rights activist Michael Shaikh, a sweeping narrative survey on how food and food culture are invisible casualties of war and political violence.

Crown, April 2024

From human rights activist Michael Shaikh, this will be a sweeping survey on how food and food culture are invisible casualties of war and political violence. From Syria to Sri Lanka, Afghanistan to Bolivia, Shaikh examines how a community’s sense of history and identity is lost when food traditions are lost, and the people who are trying to restore and reclaim their heritage.

Michael Shaikh is a climate and human rights activist and writer. He has investigated war crimes in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, genocide in Myanmar and civilian casualties in Mali and Syria for organizations like the United Nations and Human Rights Watch. In 2014, he left the UN in protest to bring public and media attention to UN’s refusal to speak out against the genocide. Since then, he’s been at the forefront of tackling the climate crisis, helping the New York City Mayor’s Office embed human rights protections for the city’s most vulnerable communities into its multibillion-dollar climate agenda. Michael has written for LitHub and contributed commentary to The New York Times, The Economist, The Financial Times, BBC, VICE, Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, and PBS Newshour. He lives in Brooklyn and cooks regularly for CHiPS, his neighborhood’s women’s shelter and soup kitchen.

Although many of us can rattle off our favorite authentic Mexican dishes, we might be hard pressed to name more than ten. Which is preposterous, given that Mexico has a rich culinary history stretching back thousands of years. For the last decade, Pati Jinich has sought out the culinary treasures of her home country, from birria, to salsa macha, to coyotas, to carne asada. 
Many of these dishes are local specialties, heirlooms passed down through generations, unknown outside of their original regions. Others have become national sensations. Each recipe is a classic. Each one comes with a story told in Pati’s warm, relatable style. And each has been tested in Pati’s American kitchen to ensure it is the best of its kind. Together, these essential recipes paint a vivid picture of the richness of Mexico.

Pati Jinich (pronounced HEEN-ich) is the host of the three-time James Beard Award-winning PBS series Pati’s Mexican Table, now in its tenth season. Named one of the « 100 Greatest Cooks of All-Time » by Epicurious and Bon Appétit, she has won a Gracie Award for her television work and is a four-time Emmy nominee and two-time IACP Award winner. She is the resident chef of the Mexican Cultural Institute and has appeared on NPR’s Splendid Table and All Things Considered, NBC’s Today, CBS’s The Talk, ABC’s Good Morning America, and Food Network. Born and raised in Mexico City, she lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with her husband and three boys.
