Where we've featured it
There’s no question what this year has meant to Black America. The names Breonna Taylor and George Floyd sparked a movement that nourished a sense of a unified community as much as it highlighted cultural divides in this country. When Germantown-born Chef Omar Tate returned home, after the COVID-19 crisis shut down his Honeysuckle Project in NYC, he brought with him a desire to illustrate the Black experience in the Philadelphia food landscape. Tate started by creating and selling takeout boxes out of South Philly Barbacoa and hosting Black chef pop-ups in rotation. The menus have plenty of highlights ranging from okra and oysters fried in cornmeal, honey pie, to a smoked leg of lamb marinated in palm oil. Tate has launched a GoFundMe campaign to create a Honeysuckle Community Center in West Philly, too.
