Newton Free Library presents: The Cooking Gene with Michael Twitty
June 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This program is presented in partnership with the Groton Public Library. Please register here.
For African American culinary historian Michael W. Twitty there was a giant hole in the story of American cooking as big as the one in the story of most African American families. Putting the microscope on himself, Michael decided to fully trace out his family history through the story of Southern and American food. Using genetic research, historic interpretation, nature study, heirloom gardening and interviews with contemporary voices in food, his journey led him back to his family’s origins in West and Central Africa and a front ring seat in the debate over race and food in American life. Join Michael W. Twitty for an engaging evening moderated by Chef Bill, a Massachusetts-based chef and author. You can follow Michael Twitty on his popular blog, Afroculinara.
