Michael Twitty: In Conversation

Jewish Heritage Center at NEHGS
101 Newbury St, Boston, Massachusetts 02116
Michael Twitty, award-winning food writer, independent scholar, and culinary historian, describes himself as outside the mainstream and “four time blessed” – “large of body, gay, African American and Jewish.”

Going by Kosher/Soul, Michael champions with what he has termed “identity cooking.” Identity cooking isn’t about fusion; rather it is how we construct complex identities that we express through food and taste. Kosher/Soul is about melding the histories, tastes, flavors, and Diasporic wisdom of being Black and being Jewish, and exploring how both cultures express values through the plate.

Join Michael Twitty as he discusses his book, The Cooking Gene, about his personal mission to document the connection between food history and his family history from Africa to America, from slavery to freedom. This Scholar in Residency was made possible with support from the CJP Jewish Learning and Engagement Commission.


$15 until January 31

$20 from February 1

Copies of Michael’s book The Cooking Gene are available for $25 (a $4 savings!) and can be purchased at checkout.
