Food & Wine Executive Producer and 2019 Best New Chef Kwame Onwuachi has built 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 Chefnext May. He participated in and acted as a guest judge for top chef also, 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 collected them here so you can try them at home. Many of the dishes you will find come from travels he made 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. And if you’ve been a fan of his waffle fries from his pop-ups and Kith/Kin in DC, we’ve got his recipe for that too. Read on for more Onwuachi recipes.
