In his new book, Koshersoul, acclaimed author Michael Twitty peers into the pots and pans of Jewish and Black Americans and finds the culinary traditions that define who we are. What he also finds are the many parallels between the “outsider” communities of which he is a part. Join Twitty and food historian Jane Ziegelman for a tantalizing conversation about collard greens and kreplach, hot pepper and horseradish, the time-honored foods that nourish and sustain us.
Michael W. Twitty is a noted culinary and cultural historian and the creator of Afroculinaria, the first blog devoted to African American historic foodways and their legacies.
