Summary
"A memoir of Southern cuisine and food culture that traces the paths of the author's ancestors (black and white) through the crucible of slavery to show its effects on our food today"--
Summary
Food blogger (Afroculinaria), Judaic studies scholar, and Southerner Michael Twitty connects family history with food and culture in this wide-ranging -- and often mouth-watering -- study. Primarily a narrative cultural history that examines slavery, race relations, soul food, and even kosher cooking, The Cooking Gene includes recipes that Twitty extensively researched and personally tested. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
