Michael Twitty, Author of Koshersoul and The Cooking Gene

Michael Twitty is with us this week to talk about ethnic and culinary history, his Southern Discomfort Tour and his books, The Cooking Gene and Koshersoul. Michael is a culinary historian and food writer.


His award-winning book, The Cooking Gene, traces his ancestry through food from Africa to America and from slavery to freedom. In Koshersoul, Michael explores two of the most distinctive cultures in the world: the foods and traditions of the Aftican Atlantic, and the global Jewish diaspora.
