WATCH: Netflix's High on the Hog
Netflix’s new food show, High on the Hog, (which is based a book of the same name) is much more than simply a food show. It is a sunny melding of history, food and travel that follows the creation of African American food.
The four episode arc travels from Africa back throughout the US States - South Carolina, Texas, Philadelphia and New York - unfolding the stories behind African American food, and its connection with Black History.
I’m only on the first part, but am eager to get watching the next. Host, Satterfield told Variety, “It’s our agricultural knowledge tied to our culinary knowledge, with this historical and cultural context, which I feel just hasn’t been seen and presented as part of a cohesive story. Until now.”
