Michael Twitty, Kosher /Soul: Black &Jewish ‘Identity Cooking’

Tuesday, April 12 at 7 p.m. 
Centennial Hall of the Milwaukee Public Library, 733 N. 8th Street

Identity cooking isn’t about fusion; rather it’s how we construct complex identities and then express them through how we eat. Very few people in the modern West eat one cuisine or live within one culinary construct. Michael Twitty‘s talk will illuminate how Kosher/ Soul is about melding the histories, tastes, flavors, and Diasporic wisdom of being Black and being Jewish. Both cultures express many of their cultural and spiritual values through the plate. Kosher/Soul is about that ongoing journey.
