“The Jemima Code” wins Art of Eating cookbook prize

jemimacodeToni Tipton-Martin has won the 2016 Art of Eating Prize for best food book of the year.

The former Austinite, who is now based mostly in Denver, published “The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks” in 2015 with the University of Texas Press.  In 2015, she hosted a foodways conference called the Soul Summit in Austin, and in September, we chatted with Tipton-Martin about her new book, including the many years she spent researching, collecting and exploring the history of African-American cookbooks.

With this prize, she’ll take home $10,000 from the Vermont-based magazine.
