MoAD Chef-in-Residence

As the inaugural Chef-in-Residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco, Bryant creates programming that celebrates the intersection of food, farming, health, activism, art, culture, and the African Diaspora. 

In the fall of 2015, Linda Harrison, Executive Director MoAD, appointed Bryant the inaugural Chef-in-Residence. His first event in October of that year was the “Black Women, Food, and Power” panel in which he brought scholars, cookbook authors, and food writers from around the country to discuss the historical and contemporary role of Black women in the production, distribution, and consumption of food and food knowledge.  That December he partnered with The People's Kitchen Collective for a multi-course “Diaspora Dinner” inside the lobby of the museum.  In the spring of 2016 he is partnering with schools in San Francisco and Oakland to activate young people around food justice issues.  Check back here for future events featuring other chefs, cookbook authors, activists, and scholars from around the globe.  Read about Bryant's residency in an article on SF Weekly here, and follow the #MoAD_Food hashtag on Instagram.
