THE CULTURE OF JOY
INSIDE THE 2022 MAGAZINE
While Entertaining is a yearly publication focused on inspiring stories and delicious recipes from chefs of the African diaspora. Each edition is a labor of love curated with the home cook and modern hostess in mind. Inside readers will find a beautiful collection of personal stories, timeless recipes, tips, playlists, and more. With equal parts beauty and functionality, While Entertaining editions are designed to be a community resource, a personal gift, and a kitchen keepsake for generations to come.

The 2022 magazine is a collection of stories and recipes that center on joy. In this third edition, we’re exploring how people are finding or creating moments of joy at home, through food, independently, and with others. After two difficult years in a pandemic, experiencing profound social unrest and widespread instability, we knew it was time for all of us to reclaim our joy. So we asked chefs from around the U.S. to discuss their relationship with joy and share the recipes that make them the happiest to cook and eat.In putting together Volume Three, we hoped this edition would capture feelings of happiness, peace, and triumph, and ultimately, commemorate how these feelings translate to the food we make and the way we relate to those around us. We hope this edition will inspire you to prioritize the people, moments, and meals that bring you the most joy.

MEET AMBER, OUR CHIEF HOSTESS

When I started While Entertaining, I wanted to create a space that would talk about food, home, and culture. I was deeply motivated by a desire to see Black stories elevated in food media. At the same time, I wanted to create content that was both editorial and functional - where we could focus on people, the food we love, and all the details that impact our food experiences. That space became While Entertaining Magazine.

 Each year, While Entertaining releases a themed issue delving into different perspectives on one central topic. Alongside the stories of the people we feature, we include recipes. 

Then, we add wine pairings, serving tips, playlists, and topics to bring to your dinner table. The result is storytelling that really jumps off the page and gives you an experience in real life. I am excited about the food and memories that you will create with While Entertaining.
