4 min read

In the new Netflix documentary series “High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America,” Stephen Satterfield leads viewers on a delicious journey, from the markets of Benin in West Africa to the rice fields of Carolina’s Low Country, from Thomas Jefferson’s elegant Virginia home to the dusty rodeos of Houston. Along the way, he meets chefs, bakers and writers, like chef B.J. Dennis of Charleston, baker Jerrelle Guy and culinary history Michael W. Twitty, who illuminate the joy and depth African American food contributed to America.

The four-part travel series, which starts streaming on May 26, was inspired and adapted from the groundbreaking 2011 book “High on the Hog” by food scholar Jessica B. Harris, who in the first episode guides Satterfield through the Dantokpa Market in Benin.
