The Ghetto Gastro team of Jon Gray, Pierre Serrao and Lester Walker have been innovating the kitchen for the last 10 years. From curating diners to partnering on products, their style has elevated the culture and brands like no other. And now they have released a new book to compliment it all. ‘Black Power Kitchen’ is a cookbook like no other. Created with big Bronx energy, it combines 75 mostly plant-based, layered-with-flavor recipes with immersive storytelling, diverse voices, and striking images and photographs that celebrate Black food and Black culture, and inspire larger conversations about race, history, food inequality, and how eating well can be a pathway to personal freedom and self-empowerment.
Black Power Kitchen is more than just a cookbook. It’s a celebration of Black food and culture, and a call to action for social change. The recipes are layered with flavor, the stories are immersive, and the images are striking. This is a cookbook that will inspire you to think about the world around you, and how eating well can be a pathway to personal freedom and self-empowerment.
The Ghetto Gastro team stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about the book and the last 10 years of their ascension.
