16 Recipes from Chef Kwame Onwuachi to Make Again and Again
Food & Wine Executive Producer and 2019 Best New Chef Kwame Onwuachi has established an impressive culinary career over the years, from winning the James Beard Foundation's Rising Star Chef of the Year award in 2019 to releasing his first cookbook, My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef, this month. He's competed on and appeared as a guest judge for Top Chef as well, and even collaborated with Orly on a nail polish collection that you can wear while you cook. Throughout his career, Onwuachi has also developed a collection of delicious recipes that we keep coming back to—we've gathered them here so you can try them at home. Several of the dishes you'll find are from trips he took to trace his culinary roots in Jamaica, Trinidad, Texas, and Louisiana, such as an Escovitch Snapper recipe inspired by his time in Jamaica and his Biscoff Banana Pudding recipe, inspired by the one his aunt Yolanda makes. Many recipes are from My America as well, including Chin Chin and Curried Goat. And if you were a fan of his waffle fries from his pop-ups and at Kith/Kin in D.C., we've got his recipe for those, too. Read on for more recipes from Onwuachi.
