In The Cooking Gene, culinary historian and award-winning food blogger Michael W. Twitty seeks to trace ancestry through Southern cuisine.

His memoir engages the charged racial politics surrounding the origins of soul food, barbecue, and all Southern cuisine, presenting a family portrait over three centuries, from Africa to America and slavery to freedom, and visiting sites from Alabama synagogues to black-owned organic farms. Celebrating the rich customs of ancestral survival, Twitty reveals the power that food has to bring us to the table where we can discover the real America together.
