Jerrelle Guy on Charcoal Banana Bread and #BlackGirlMagic — Follow Her

Welcome to Kitchn’s series Follow Her, where we highlight some of the coolest, most inspiring women in food you need to know about right now.

Jerrelle Guy is doing some of the coolest stuff in baking right now. The blogger behind Chocolate for Basil recently released her first cookbook, Black Girl Baking, which includes a recipe for charcoal banana bread. You guys, charcoal banana bread! How exciting is that? I can say from first-hand experience that it’s some of the best banana bread I’ve ever had. “It was a little experiment on how changing the color of something can alter our expectations,” Jerrelle says of the bread. All of Jerrelle’s recipes are like this — both deeply familiar and also innovative and fun.

Jerrelle and her partner, Eric, live in Boston. Although just recently graduated from college this past December, she has already established herself as someone to watch out for in the food world. We caught up with her to talk about who inspires her and what it means to bring #blackgirlmagic to the kitchen.
