Come hear Michael W. Twitty, a James Beard Award-Winning Author, independent scholar, culinary historian, and historical interpreter. Twitty prepares, preserves, and promotes African-American foodways and its parent traditions in Africa and throughout the African Diaspora, including its legacy in the food culture of the American South. Michael is a Judaic studies teacher from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area.

The Cooking Gene is Michael’s personal mission to document the connection between food history and family history from Africa to America, from slavery to freedom. Initiated in 2011, the project successfully garnered funding and significant media attention in 2012 to initiate a journey known as The Southern Discomfort Tour. Follow him on twitter @koshersoul, and meet him at the MJCC on Sunday, March 3, 2019.
