“Why do I need another cookbook?” you may ask, after having spent most of quarantine pouring over this particular genre. We promise you, Kwame Onwuachi’s “My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef” is worth it. From this James Beard award-winner comes a cookbook that celebrates the cuisine of the African diaspora, “the world’s wisest food.” Onwuachi returns to Chicago Humanities Festival to season our stage with the stories behind his family’s recipes; the connections between cuisine, place, and culture; and how food helps us make sense of the world. Onwuachi is joined in conversation by Dario Durham and Sara Faddah, hosts of the podcast “77 Flavors of Chicago.”
