The Cooking Gene by Michael W. Twitty
Limited spots available

Sign-up deadline: June 1st

Genre: Black Southern Food Memoir
Length: 480 pages

Culinary historian Michael W. Twitty leads us on a journey through the rich food culture of America's south and the racial divides that have impacted the evolution of Southern cooking. This memoir focuses on the author's own family history, the impact of Southern politics, and the voyage of Black food from slavery to freedom. Personal narrative and a blunt look at racial politics meet at the table over soul food and barbecue.
