Cook with us
This month, we’re not just in the kitchen to cook; we’re here in conversation. Join us during Black History Month to hear directly from chefs as they explore themes of Black culture and identity and share their stories of what food means for them, their families, and their communities. These cooking classes and demos directly support Black entrepreneurs and owners who have grown their food businesses at Hot Bread Kitchen, with 100% of proceeds going to our chefs.

Black History Month at Hot Bread Kitchen
February is Black History Month in the U.S., traditionally a time to acknowledge the central role of Black people and African-Americans in the nation’s history. In 2021, this month means a few different things to us at Hot Bread Kitchen: it is a moment to celebrate the beauty and complexity of Black culture and identity; to reflect on the multitude of Black experiences in this country and across the globe; and to reground ourselves as we continue our work to promote equity and economic opportunity for communities of color. Black History Month is also a unique opportunity to acknowledge and amplify the voices of our community, particularly our workforce members and food entrepreneurs who identify as Black or African-Americans, whose products encompass and share the culinary diversity of the African diaspora.
