Writer, educator and Harvard graduate Caroline Randall Williams reveals the staggering number of cookbooks she owns and how her personal experiences and history as a Black woman shaped her vision for her show, Hungry for Answers. Caroline talks about how the women in her life shaped her culinary perspective and what it means to be a steward of Black food and culture. She details the stories she uncovered over the course of filming, including the Black family that created the famed Nashville Hot Chicken and the reality of appreciation versus appropriation. Caroline shares the systemic lack of credit and ownership given to Black creators and what it means to course correct using the story of Nearest Green, the Black man who taught Jack Daniel’s how to distill whiskey, as an example. She explores the history of sugarcane and its relationship to convict leasing and the shocking inequities that Black farmers face. Caroline talks about the delicious food she got to experience on the show and her advice for someone who has a story they need to share.
