Ghetto Gastro Announces Debut Book, Black Power Kitchen

Published

on

Ghetto Gastro

Today, Ghetto Gastro announced the global release of their first-ever book, Black Power Kitchen (Artisan Books; Hardcover / 304 pages /150 color photographs), on October 18, 2022. A celebration of Black culture, the book is also a cookbook, a manifesto, and a strikingly beautiful work of art that will spark conversation about inclusion, race, access, and how food—and knowing how to cook—provide a path to freedom and self-empowerment.

The release of Black Power Kitchen is timed to the 10th anniversary of Ghetto Gastro, the Bronx-born culinary collective from Jon Gray, Pierre Serrao, and Lester Walker. Ghetto Gastro sits at the intersection of food, music, fashion, visual arts, and social activism. Now they bring their multidisciplinary approach to disrupting and reinventing what a cookbook can offer. Written with James Beard Award-winning writer Osayi Endolyn, Black Power Kitchen arms readers with 75 mostly plant-based recipes, immersive storytelling, diverse voices, and striking images and photographs that inspire larger conversations about race, history, and food inequality.

This past year, Ghetto Gastro has found mainstream success across genres. The collective released a custom line of kitchen appliances, CRUXGG, across Target stores nationwide, and a cookware line of the same name in Williams Sonoma. They also launched their namesake consumer goods brand of pantry items inspired by ancestral ingredients. In February, Ghetto Gastro partnered with Wolfgang Puck for the iconic Oscars Governors Ball, the first time in 26 years that Puck brought on a collaborator. They have since produced culinary experiences for Coachella, Spotify, BottleRock Napa, Diageo, Audemars Piguet, and more.

Black Power Kitchen is available for preorder now wherever books are sold. The book’s cover and interiors were designed by New Studio, and features work by Nayquan Shuler and Joshua Woods.

Ghetto Gastro is the Bronx-born culinary collective from Jon Gray, Pierre Serrao, and Lester Walker. The group has defined its own lane, merging food, fashion, music, art, and design. Claiming both the beauty and grit from the streets with the aspiration and aesthetics of the finer things, Ghetto Gastro’s interdisciplinary approach celebrates the Bronx as a driver of global culture. The crew masterfully blends influences from the African diaspora, global South ingredients, and the pulse of hip-hop to create offerings that address race, identity, and economic empowerment.
