Heritage by Sean Brock
Requirements: .PDF reader, 97.4 MB
Overview: New York Times best seller
Winner, James Beard Foundation Award, Best Book of the Year in American Cooking
Winner, IACP Julia Child First Book Award
Sean Brock is the chef behind the game-changing restaurants Husk and McCrady’s, and his first book offers all of his inspired recipes. With a drive to preserve the heritage foods of the South, Brock cooks dishes that are ingredient-driven and reinterpret the flavors of his youth in Appalachia and his adopted hometown of Charleston. The recipes include all the comfort food (think food to eat at home) and high-end restaurant food (fancier dishes when there’s more time to cook) for which he has become so well-known. Brock’s interpretation of Southern favorites like Pickled Shrimp, Hoppin’ John, and Chocolate Alabama Stack Cake sit alongside recipes for Crispy Pig Ear Lettuce Wraps, Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder with Tomato Gravy, and Baked Sea Island Red Peas. This is a very personal book, with headnotes that explain Brock’s background and give context to his food and essays in which he shares his admiration for the purveyors and ingredients he cherishes.

Untangling a Pink, White, and Black Heritage: A Private Historical past of the Allotment Period by Darnella Davis
Necessities: .PDF reader, 2.three MB
Overview: Analyzing the legacy of racial mixing in Indian Territory by means of the land and lives of two households, one among Cherokee Freedman descent and one among Muscogee Creek heritage, Darnella Davis’s memoir writes a brand new chapter within the historical past of racial mixing on the frontier. It’s the solely book-length account of the intersections between the three races in Indian Territory and Oklahoma written from the angle of a tribal particular person and a freedman.
The histories of those households, together with the starkly completely different federal insurance policies that molded their destinies, provide a strong corrective to the historic narrative. From the Allotment Interval to the current, their claims of racial identification and land in Oklahoma reveal inequalities that also fester a couple of hundred years later. Davis provides a provocative alternative to unpack our present racial discourse and ask ourselves, "Who’re ‘we’ actually?"
