Klancy Miller Celebrates Black Chefs with For the Culture

As a pastry chef and recipe developer, Klancy Miller ’96CC often felt she didn’t have many role models in her chosen profession. Hoping to learn from and celebrate other Black women working in food and wine, Miller founded a print magazine called For the Culture. Now she has turned that material into a book of the same title — a gorgeously illustrated collection of interviews, profiles, and recipes from some of the leading ladies of the industry. Below are just a few of the portraits from the book.
