Jubilee Talks: Toni Tipton-Martin and Chef Todd Richards
September 9, 2020 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Black American chefs and cooks are often typecast as the experts of only one cuisine—soul food, but Todd Richards’ food is anything but stereotypical. Taste his Hot Chicken-Style Country-Fried Lamb Steak or Blueberry Sweet Tea-Brined Chicken Thighs as evidence. While his dishes are rooted in family and the American cuisine known as soul food, he doesn’t let his heritage restrain him. Richards firmly believes that cooks can honor tradition yet be liberated to explore. In this conversation with Toni Tipton-Martin, Richards shares his creativity and passion to highlight what soul food can be for a new generation of cooks.
