Twitty, who is a culinary historian and food writer from the Washington, D.C. area, will shed light on some of America’s darkest moments, highlighting the African roots of the rich culinary tradition of the South. He will also reflect on his Black and Jewish identities and how he often unites and blends them in food as an expression of “Kosher soul.”
