There is no one movie, song, or book that will make these troubled times disappear, but "The Culinary Art Portfolio of Josephine E. Jones"—where art and food intersect—will give you welcome relief.
Wendy Jones—whose text accompanies John Turner’s color photographs—showcases the culinary art of her mother, Josephine E. Jones.
Josephine, in 1967, may have been the first African American woman in management at a Fortune 500 company, Standard Brands, now Kraft.
Neither a cookbook nor a how-to book, the portfolio’s 16 photos, printed on glossy paper, are perforated so they can be removed and framed.
The text on each facing page includes the ingredients used, the processes employed, and not only Josephine E. Jones’s comments on food presentation, but also the wisdom of her positive approach to life—despite obstacles—which she overcame.
The photographs will give you the pleasure derived from any art book.
The text will inspire you to create your own culinary art.
And framing your favorite photos will give you, your family, and your friends enjoyment for many years to come.
