Vegan chef, food-justice activist and author Bryant Terry will bring his African American-inspired cuisine to Germantown next week.

One of several stops on the world tour for his new book, “Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean and Southern Flavors Remixed,” Terry will attend a food-tasting and book-signing event at the Soup Factory Studio on April 28.

Who he is

Terry is a well-known author whose writings express a commitment to creating a healthy, just and sustainable food system. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Food and Wine, Gourmet, O, The Oprah Magazine and, among many other outlets, Essence magazine.

Terry has also penned three books, including “The Inspired Vegan,” “Grub” and the critically acclaimed “Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine.”

His fourth book, Afro Vegan, is being published by Ten Speed/Random House later this month.

The event

Next Monday, Terry will be the featured guest for a Supper Club event, where he will discuss recipes and provide samples of dishes from his latest book.

The event will also feature artwork from visual artist Natalie Erin Brown, a Pennsylvania native, and beverages from Capital Kombucha brewery.

The Soup Factory Studio (6143 Germantown Ave.) event starts at 6 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online for $14 up until the day of the event.

Clarification: The event is being hosted by Uptown Soul Food at Soup Factory Studio.
