EATING OUR WORDS Book Club: The Cooking Gene by Michael W. Twitty

Join us for our inaugural meeting of TYB’s new book club devoted to food writing!

We’re thrilled to discuss THE COOKING GENE: A Journey Through African American Culinary History in the Old South, winner of the 2018 James Beard Book of the Year Award. Culinary historian Michael W. Twitty presents “a mix of personal narrative and the history of race, politics, economics and enslavement that will broaden notions of African-American culinary identity” (Toni Tipton-Martin, James Beard Award-winning author of The Jemima Code).
