by Erica Huff on 2020-08-31T11:01:00-04:00 | Comments

The MTC Reads Book for 2020 will be Notes from a Young Black Chef, a memoir by Kwame Onwuachi (view his biography here), an American restaurateur and recipient of multiple honors, including a James Beard Award for his innovative menus evocative of the expansive African diaspora. Many MTC English 101 classes will be reading Onwuachi’s autobiography as part of their 2020-21 curriculum. Notes from a Young Black Chef was chosen as this year’s MTC Reads Book for its connection to the timely themes of structural inequality, workplace diversity, and perseverance. Additional themes students will focus on include cultural significance of food and local efforts to reduce food insecurity.
