Community Food Centres Canada presents James Beard Cookbook Award winner Michael W. Twitty.
In his James Beard award-winning book, The Cooking Gene, culinary historian Michael W. Twitty explores the contested history of Southern food by tracing his own ancestry back to Africa through to the American South, and the present day. Along the journey, he addresses questions of authenticity, authority, and ownership, and explores what it really means to cook from a place of heritage, identity, and belonging. At the heart of his book, and of his Toronto conversation with journalist Denise Balkissoon, is the question of how we build social justice through food, and what role we each play in that shared undertaking.
