Gabrielle E. W. Carter


Years of Participation


Gabrielle uses material culture to share stories that reframe wealth and access. Her work as a culinary artist is rooted in the celebration of rural culture, and centers unifying the African Diaspora.

In 2018 she returned to her family’s homestead in Central North Carolina, where she is archiving her own familial food and land traditions. Her recipes and storytelling have been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and the Smithsonian. She has done cooking demonstrations and panels for the Culinary Institute of America, Food Tank, Race Forward, and can be seen in the Netflix series, High on the Hog.

She also co-founded the North Carolina based Black Farmer CSA, Tall Grass Food Box, a platform to support and encourage the sustainability of Black farmers, by increasing their visibility, providing an additional stream of income, and securing space for them in the local marketplace.
