If you love cooking then you’ve probably watched shows like Top Chef and Chopped that features some of your favorite cooks duke it out until there’s only one left.

That’s all well and good, but don’t you wish there was a little more diversity in these shows. Like more Black representation, especially since we know we can cook.

Bringing It To The Table is a new web series that aims to do just that. This show will feature all African-American chefs showing off their skills all while having a good time!

Black News.com reports:

The six-part series will showcase talented African American chefs as they show off their skills and personalities. (Take a bite and view the official trailer on YouTube at https://youtu.be/8xpbT52Ys7M)

The show’s creator and executive producer, Aminah ‘Chef MiMi’ Robinson-Briscoe, is from Berkeley, California and a graduate of the prestigious (CCA) California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, CA. She was the youngest in her class to graduate at the age of just 19 years old. For over 20 years, she has been a skilled culinary professional who has won numerous awards and has been featured in Ebony Magazine and Cuisine Noir, the first black online culinary magazine.

According to the show’s creator, the intention behind the series is to show the art of cooking from an African American perspective. “Many times when we think of chefs of color, we think of barbecue and fried chicken. And although we love it, it’s not all that we can prepare,” the show creators said. “But it is society’s stereotypes as seen so often in the media food space.”

Bringing It To The Table will air on Thanksgiving November 23 on YouTube. Be sure to tune in to the show and get your fill of all that’s Black and beautiful in the kitchen.

    I’ve been crying for diversity on all competition reality shows forever. They usually only have 1 black man and woman and they will be the first to get voted out.

  2. AMEN for the cooking show! I would still allow others to taste the food, like a blind tasting to keep things above board. One thing I always disliked about Chopped is that they appear to have made decisions well before the last round, so even when chefs have made it to the dessert round and win that round, they loose talking about other dishes in previous rounds so it is bias from the start based upon “who” they want to give $10k too. Good looking idea for a new cooking show and I hope we all support you!
