Please join CJP’s Jewish Learning and Engagement Commission for a riveting evening with memoirist and chef Michael W. Twitty.

The author will discuss his book, “The Cooking Gene,” which takes readers on a wide-ranging exploration of contemporary Jewish identity and culinary history. Whether you’ve read it cover to cover or haven’t yet picked it up, this promises to be an exciting and enlightening evening.

Michael W. Twitty is a food writer, independent scholar, culinary historian, and author of “The Cooking Gene,” a memoir documenting the connection between food and family history in the Old South. His brand of identity cooking called Kosher/Soul is a melding of histories, flavors, and Diasporic wisdom of being black and Jewish.
