It is long past time to recognise Black excellence in the culinary world the same way it has been celebrated in the worlds of music, sports, literature, and the arts. Black cooks and creators have led American culture forward with indelible contributions of artistry and ingenuity from the start, but Black authorship has been consistently erased from the story of American food.

Now, in The Rise star Marcus gathers together an unforgettable feast of food, culture to highlight the diverse deliciousness of Black cooking today. Driven by a desire to fight against bias, reclaim Black culinary traditions, and a new generation of cooks, Marcus shares his own journey alongside 150 dishes in honour of dozens of top chefs, writers, and activists—with stories exploring their creativity and influence.
