The Cooking Gene- A Discussion with Culinary Historian, Food Writer and Historical Interpreter Michael Twitty

This week, I have Michael Twitty. He's a food writer, independent scholar, culinary historian and historical interpreter personally charged with preparing, preserving and promoting African American foodways, and its parent traditions in Africa and her diaspora, and the food culture of the American South. 

Michael is a Judaic Studies teacher from the Washington DC area, and his interests include food culture, food history, Jewish cultural issues, African American history, and cultural politics. He started the blog Afroculinaria 10 years ago. His book, The Cooking Gene won the James Beard award in 2018 for both Book of the Year, and best food writing.
