Dr. Jessica B. Harris, culinary historian, cookbook author, journalist, and friend of Reset the Table, was recently named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2021! She brings culture, context, and meaning to food in ways you’ve never thought of. Chef and writer Carla Hall speaks to Jessica’s influential presence around her works in food.
“Eating is something that we all have to do every day, and she has had a huge influence on the way we eat. Through work like her best-selling book, High on the Hog: A Culinary Journey From Africa to America, and the 2021 Netflix series it inspired, Jessica makes food more approachable—it’s not intimidating, it’s very much accessible.”
