Editorial Reviews

Review

“With Vegetable Kingdom, Bryant Terry positions great cooking exactly where it belongs: smack dab in the midst of our lives. Here is the kind of cooking in context—among kids and friends, ancestors and communities—that has the power to bring us profound meaning and pure pleasure. Bryant understands that our kitchens are where sustenance, and substance, simmer. With an inspired soundtrack and a loving spirit, he reminds us that the familiar, exotic, and delicious kingdom of vegetables offers all the richness we could ever want.”—Cal Peternell, chef and author of Twelve RecipesA Recipe for Cooking; and Almonds, Anchovies, and Pancetta

Vegetable Kingdom is an artful and inspiring volume that is not only a collection of innovative plant-based recipes, it’s also a multifaceted celebration of culture, family, ecology, and health. Bryant Terry’s true artistry is in his ability to celebrate and remix global foodways in vegan creations that are full of vitality and beauty. This gorgeous book gives everyone access to Bryant’s amazing creative vision: it’s a joyous collection of Afro-Asian recipes that delight the eye as well as the palate.”—Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York

Vegetable Kingdom is an altar to our Diasporic ancestors, a legacy offering to our children, and a shrine to the plant friends who nourish us. As a parent, I felt inspired by the ingenious ways that Bryant ‘Blackifies’ uncommon vegetables and makes them kid-friendly. As a Haitian, I felt particularly jubilant as I prepared spicy Pikliz to the steamy Creole love ballad ‘Ou Fe’m’ that Bryant paired with the recipe. As an overworked, time-scarce person, I appreciated the tips for advanced prep on the weekends and inclusion of efficient meals.”—Leah Penniman, co-director of Soul Fire Farm and author of Farming While Black

“Bryant Terry wrote 
Vegetable Kingdom for his daughters and we’re so lucky we get to have it on our shelves, too. Whether or not you’re vegan, it’s full of recipes we all want to make in our kitchens. From crunchy slaws to creamy soups and vegetable po’boys, Bryant has created an inspiring collection of dishes that channel so many influences.”—Julia Turshen, author of Small Victories, host of Keep Calm & Cook On, and founder of Equity at the Table

“I absolutely love 
Vegetable Kingdom, which is an inventive, mouth-watering feast of many kinds, and at the same time sensual, musical, intellectual, and cultural. What Bryant Terry has done most beautifully is to root African Diasporic and Asian cuisines in their proper soil of family and community. This book feels like home in the deepest sense—full of brilliant colors, sounds, smells, and flavors—and it is our great fortune to be invited in.”—Jamel Brinkley, National Book Award finalist and author of A Lucky Man

“Bryant Terry’s 
Vegetable Kingdom is phenomenal. Like his previous cookbooks, it transforms the kitchen into a site for creating global culinary encounters, this time inviting us to savor Afro-Asian vegan creations. With the recommended music, each recipe reminds us that vegetables can not only help us save the planet, but can also be a source of boundless enjoyment.”—Angela Y. Davis, distinguished professor emerita at the University of California Santa Cruz

“In the great Black American tradition of the remix and doing what you can with what you got, my friend Bryant Terry goes hard at vegetables with a hip-hop eye and a Southern grandmama’s nature. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, Bryant wants us to know that once we know vegetables better, we will cook vegetables better. He ain’t lyin’.”
—W. Kamau Bell, comedian, author, and host of the Emmy Award–winning series United Shades of America

“[Terry’s] perspective is casual and family-oriented, and the book feels personal and speaks to a wide swath of cooks . . . each dish comes with a recommended soundtrack, completing his mission to provide an immersive, joyful experience.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Contemporary, inviting, flavorful—but most of all, this is an ode to the beauty of vegetables. Bryant’s approach to cooking is one of pure joy and his recipes are a triumph that reflect this in the truest sense.”
—Nik Sharma, author of Season

"This young food activist makes southern cooking healthy and cool."

--New York Times

Bryant Terry is a chef, educator, and author renowned for his activism to create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system. In regard to his work, Bryant’s mentor Alice Waters says, “Bryant Terry knows that good food should be an everyday right and not a privilege.”

Bryant is the author of the critically acclaimed Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine, which was named one of the best vegetarian/vegan cookbooks of the last 25 years by Cooking Light Magazine. Bryant also authored The Inspired Vegan, and he coauthored Grub (with Anna Lappe), which The New York Times called “ingenious.” Bryant’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Food and Wine, Gourmet, Sunset, O: The Oprah Magazine, Essence, Yoga Journal, and Vegetarian Times among many other publications. As an exclusive speaker signed with the Lavin Agency, Bryant presents frequently around the country as a keynote speaker at community events and colleges, including Brown, Columbia, NYU, Smith, Stanford, and Yale.

Bryant is the host of Urban Organic--a multi-episode web series that he co-created--and he was a co-host of the public television series, The Endless Feast. He is a featured expert in the documentary Soul Food Junkies and the PBS educational film Nourish. Bryant has made dozens of national television and radio appearances, including being a guest on The Martha Stewart Show, Emeril Green, All Things Considered, Morning Edition, The Splendid Table, and The Tavis Smiley Show.

Bryant’s education efforts and activism have earned him numerous accolades. In 2012, he was chosen by The U.S. State Department as one of 80 American chefs to be a part of its new American Chef Corps. That same year TheRoot.com included him on its list of “100 most influential African Americans,” TheGrio.com included him on its list of “100 African Americans making history today,” and the San Francisco Bay Guardian named him “Best Cookbook Cheftivist” in the Bay Area. In 2011 Bryant was included in Ebony Magazine’s “Power 100 list,” and in 2009, The New York Times magazine featured him among a handful of “food fighters.” From 2008-2010 Bryant was a fellow of the Food and Society Fellows Program, a national Program of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Bryant was selected as one of the “Hot 20 Under 40” in the San Francisco Bay Area magazine 7x7 in 2008,.and in 2007 he received the inaugural Natural Gourmet Institute Award for Excellence in Health-Supportive Education along with author and Educator Marion Nestle.

In 2002 Bryant founded b-healthy (Build Healthy Eating and Lifestyles to Help Youth), a multi-year initiative in New York City designed to empower youth to be more active in fighting for a more sustainable food system.

Bryant graduated from the Chef’s Training Program at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York City. He holds an M.A. in History from NYU and a B.A. with honors in English from Xavier University of Louisiana. He lives in Oakland, California with his wife and daughter.
