The Rise Cook Book (Signed Copy)

This Groundbreaking New Cookbook from chef, bestselling author, and TV star Marcus Samuelsson celebrates contemporary Black cooking in 150 extraordinarily delicious recipes.

It is long past time to recognize Black excellence in the culinary world the same way it has been celebrated in the worlds of music, sports, literature, film, 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, chef, author, and television star Marcus Samuelsson gathers together an unforgettable feast of food, culture, and history to highlight the diverse deliciousness of Black cooking today. Driven by a desire to fight against bias, reclaim Black culinary traditions, and energize a new generation of cooks, Marcus shares his own journey alongside 150 recipes in honor of dozens of top chefs, writers, and activists—with stories exploring their creativity and influence.

Black cooking has always been more than “Soul Food,” with flavors tracing to the African continent, to the Caribbean, all over the United States, and beyond.

Featuring a mix of everyday food and celebration cooking, this book also includes an introduction to the pantry of the African diaspora, alongside recipes such as: Chilled corn and tomato soup in honor of chef Mashama Bailey, Grilled short ribs with a piri-piri marinade and saffron tapioca pudding in homage to authors Michael Twitty and Jessica B. Harris, Crab curry with yams and mustard greens for Nyesha Arrington , Spiced catfish with pumpkin leche de tigre to celebrate Edouardo Jordan
Island jollof rice with a shout-out to Eric Adjepong
Steak frites with plantain chips and green vinaigrette in tribute to Eric Gestel
Tigernut custard tart with cinnamon poached pears in praise of Toni Tipton-Martin

A stunning work of breadth and beauty, The Rise is more than a cookbook. It’s the celebration of a movement.

The food was delivered on time and was appropriately packaged to maintain safety. More importantly, it was DELICIOUS! The pandemic cancelled our 10 year anniversary trip. However, since we couldn't go to Street Bird, bringing their Hot Honey Chicken and Cornbread Waffles to us was a treat!

The chicken was good. Not great as I was expecting. My wife does not like dark meat and I never bothered to find out what was being sent and apparently you have no choice but to get it. So I liked it and she would not eat it. But I am sure this would be stunning if I were at the restaurant where it came from.

It was such a unique mix of flavors, packaged with clear instructions. When we could not travel during Covid, it let us nonetheless experience a famous chef’s cooking—a lovely meal with several dishes!

Everything about Streetbird’s fried chicken and waffles is excellent. They don’t bother with the tasteless chicken breast, the chicken is all dark meat, where the flavor is. Each piece of chicken is prepped, all fat is removed and the breading is thin and crisp and perfectly seasoned. The waffles are amazing, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The honey is warm, slightly seasoned, perfect for the chicken. Succotash accompanies the main dish, a lovely blend of Lima beans, tomatoes, corn and greens. I will definitely get chicken from Streetbird again, Goldbelly is a fun and delicious way to bring restaurants from across the country into your kitchen and bring a celebration to our locked-down tables.
