Chef Toussaint, affectionately known as Chef T, is a culinary genius. Chef T spends many hours on the weekends creating award-winning appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Turning the pages, you join Chef Toussaint in the kitchen as he prepares mouth-watering dishes from some of his grandmother's favorite recipes.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

Article On The Children's Book Chef Toussaint Palmer Continues Below...

Chef T is David Miller's brainchild, a Washington, DC-based writer and social entrepreneur working to change the game in children's publishing. Miller is focused on producing high-quality, educationally rich children's books that highlight Black families. He has written several full-color children's books featuring positive Black male characters.

Miller points out that "all too often your zip code determines your access to books. Sadly, many children grow up in book deserts. I have visited schools that do not have libraries. Parents are key for improving literacy rates and connecting children to books," Miller adds. Chef Toussaint is a great book for families to enjoy together. In addition to being an engaging story, it comes complete with recipes and a message for parents in the back of the book.

Praise for Chef Toussaint:

"David Miller's new picture book, 'Chef Toussaint', sizzles. He adroitly incorporates entrepreneurship, the importance of family, Black history, healthy eating, and a love of cooking in a neatly written story that will surely engage young readers everywhere. Chef Toussaint is such a fun read, and youngsters will learn important life lessons without realizing it. The richly layered illustrations by C. J. Love perfectly complement the text, drawing the reader into even the smallest details. This book is a winner and will surely be a welcomed addition to homes and classrooms alike." -- Wade Hudson, Co-Editor, The Talk: Conversations About Race, Love & Truth

"Chef Toussaint is as culturally relevant as it is appealing to one's appetite. If your child has a love for literature and cooking, this is the right book for them." -- Ronnie N. Sidney, II, LCSW, author of Nelson Beats the Odds

"David Miller is a modern author that is focused on ensuring children see a representation of themselves in literature. His characters are well developed, creative, and relatable. Children enjoy reading his books, while educators and parents find them to be great teaching resources. Miller brings a sense of community, family, and relevancy to all his books, making him a premier author for the 21st century." -- M. Mimi Sutton, Author of Grace Goes to Ghana, Educator
