A Note From meikoandthedish

Juneteenth – a jubilee of freedom to commemorate the end of slavery – and to amplify the food traditions of black culinary creatives.  Juneteenth (a merge of the words/date June Nineteenth) marks the date in 1865 that the last enslaved people learned of their freedom.  And for over 150 years since, Black American families, home-cooks, chefs, and culinarians have commemorated the summer holiday with a wide range of food traditions that tell a story of the perseverance of a people. This incredibly talented group of notable Black food bloggers came together to host a virtual Juneteenth Cookout. Give some (or all!) of these amazing recipes a try!
