From Harlem to Houston: 'High on the Hog' Season 2 Delves Deeper into African American Culinary Heritage

Netflix’s groundbreaking series, “High on the Hog,” is set to enthrall its audience once again with its second season, premiering on November 22. Adapted from Jessica B. Harris’s seminal book, this acclaimed docu-series takes viewers on an exploratory journey through the rich tapestry of African-American culinary history. Hosted by the food writer, Stephen Satterfield, the show promises to be a blend of culinary adventure and historical exploration.

Season 1 Recap: A Trail of Culinary Discovery

The first season of “High on the Hog” was a revelation, both in terms of content and storytelling. Stephen Satterfield’s journey through the Carolinas, Houston, and 1700s Virginia not only uncovered the roots of traditional Black cuisine but also paid homage to the often-overlooked contributions of enslaved chefs. The series skillfully highlighted the significance of Gullah Geechee cuisine, providing viewers with a deeper understanding of the intricate connections between food, culture, and history.

What to Expect in Season 2

Season two is poised to continue this immersive exploration, with episodes set against the vibrant backdrops of New York City, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. This season aims to delve deeper into the cultural connections that link West African culinary traditions with the American Gulf Coast. It’s not just about the food; it’s about the stories, the people, and the movements that have shaped African-American history.

Viewers can look forward to insightful conversations with a diverse array of guests, including chefs, artists, and activists. These discussions promise to unravel the many layers of African-American culinary history, highlighting pivotal moments such as the creation of Chicken & Waffles during the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Panther Party’s Free Breakfast Program in the 1960s, and the ongoing efforts to combat food apartheid through community gardens.

The Creative Team Behind the Series

“High on the Hog” is a testament to the power of storytelling in documentary filmmaking. Directed by Erik Parker and Kamilah Forbes, the series is produced by a team of acclaimed executive producers, including Roger Ross Williams, Geoff Martz, Craig Piligian, Sarba Das, Fabienne Toback, Karis Jagger, Jessica B. Harris, Stephen Satterfield, and Michele Barnwell. Their collective vision has not only created a compelling series but also an important cultural document.

Why Watch “High on the Hog” Season 2?

The second season of “High on the Hog” is more than just a documentary series; it’s a journey through the soul of American cuisine, seen through the lens of African American history. It’s a celebration of cultural creativity and a nod to the significant role that African-American cuisine has played in social justice movements and community transformations across the United States.

The series is set to further cement its status as an award-winning documentary, inviting viewers to engage in a unique culinary experience that is both educational and profoundly moving.
