Promo - An Interview with Michael W Twitty

February 09, 2021

I cannot believe my sheer luck in getting the opportunity to interview Michael W Twitty! Well, luck and a year of trying. The man is BUSY.

In 2017, Michael published a watershed book called The Cooking Gene. It's an amazing work of research - into folklore, into genealogy, into history, and deeper into his career of choice, Southern foodways and their connection to Africa. This is a sneeky peek into the nature of our conversation, which was almost two hours long and which I am editing into two separate episodes.

Enjoy this preview of who Michael is and what's on his mind, then buy his book at his blog,
