-Michael Twitty, author, culinary historian, and educator
"There's so much heart in Homage that it stopped me in my tracks. Sure, the book's got excellent recipes—who can resist the succulent poetry of Whoopie Pies and Dandelion Wine, Yam Molasses and Okra Chow-Chow, Pan-Seared Chicken Livers and Crispy Fried Tomatoes? But Chris Scott goes deep beyond cooking in the spirit of honoring his ancestors, guiding his four children, and telling a uniquely American story. You can sense that spirit glowing from every page: Homage is an instant classic."
-Jeff Gordinier, author of Hungry
“If a dish could hold a whole a generational, cultural culinary history, you would find it in Homage. A family’s Black heritage in a book of recipes flavored by a unique Amish tradition. Homage is about perseverance and evolution, and stories that serve the life, artistry, and devotion of Chris Scott on a plate. Here is food born of love, life, a family's faith, and a coming of age. Because just when you thought you knew what soul food was, think again: be truly amazed, satiated, and transported.”
-Alexander Smalls, chef, restauranteur, author, opera singer, and social minister
”Having the privilege of cooking alongside Chris Scott, I can assure you that his food and his writing are passionate and soulful, and utterly important. Homage is a must-have and a must-read.”
-Mike Solomonov, James Beard Award winning chef and cookbook author
“Chris Scott is the real deal. His food is an authentic extension of his heritage and his training. He is a student of cuisine, bringing creativity and innovation to traditional flavors to make them insanely delicious.”
-Tanya Holland, chef, restaurateur, podcast host, and cookbook author
”Two cultures steeped in farming find rich common ground in this captivating tribute from chef Scott.”?—Publishers Weekly, starred review
