 Toni Tipton-Martin Biography

Toni Tipton-Martin is a culinary journalist and author using cultural heritage and cooking to build community.

Toni received a 2016 James Beard Book Award, the 2016 Art of Eating Prize, and she is the recipient of a 2015 Certificate of Outstanding Contribution to Publishing from the Black Caucus of the Library Association for her celebration of African American cooks, The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks. The New Yorker named this essential work one of the “Best cookbooks of the Century So Far.”

Her latest cookbook, Jubilee: Recipes From Two Centuries of African American Cooking, is also highly acclaimed. In just six weeks, Jubilee became an Amazon #1 Best Seller, was named one of the Best Cookbooks of 2019 by The New York Times, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The Chicago Tribune and NPR, and scored a Second Printing. Published by Clarkson Potter, Jubilee brings to life 100 dishes from the African American cookbooks in Toni’s rare collection through breath-taking photography and engaging story-telling.

Toni is the first African American Food Editor of a major daily newspaper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and she covered nutrition for the Los Angeles Times, and Heart and Soul Magazine. She is a former guest judge on Bravo's Top Chef, a featured speaker at book festivals, libraries, museums, universities and food organizations. She is a member of the James Beard Awards committee, a co-founder and former president of both Southern Foodways Alliance and Foodways Texas, and is profiled in the 35th Annual 2016 Aetna African American History Calendar. Toni also is an advisor to a grassroots peace movement that is rekindling the pie social as a vehicle for racial tolerance, and a member of the Advisory Board for Oldways’ African Heritage Diet Pyramid.

Toni was recognized twice by First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House for her community service work. After 30 years of reporting on food and teaching nutrition in classes, Toni founded a 501c3 nonprofit organization that promotes the connection between cultural heritage, food and health through its events: The Children’s Picnic, a free, open-to-the-public festival held in partnership with the City of Austin; and Soul Summit, the first conference dedicated exclusively to African American foodways.

Toni is fulfilling her life’s dream to restore a Victorian building. She and her husband purchased a rowhouse in Baltimore’s historic Charles Village neighborhood, one of the colorful “Painted Ladies.” Her extensive and rare cookbook library and her nonprofit’s next outreach to the community will occupy part of the house. Toni is a wife and the mother of four."
