Join Us for an Evening with Culinary Historian Michael Twitty, Feb. 21








Michael Twitty is an award-winning culinary historian and food writer whose book The Cooking Gene won the 2018 James Beard Award for Book of the Year. As a Black and Jewish gay man, his work speaks to the intersections of identity and the relationships between food, culture, and social justice. He has been featured on Netflix shows such as High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America and Waffles and Mochi, hosted by Michelle Obama. His newest book, Koshersoul, will be released in 2022.


The Bildner Center is pleased to partner with the Center for Social Justice Education & LGBT Communities, among others at Rutgers, to present this event.
