Understanding Your Plate Is Understanding Yourself by Tastemaker Michael Twitty
Food for me is a vehicle for exploring every part of who I am. I'm African American, Jewish, gay, Southern, a man of size. Each of these pieces is a part of my journey and I look to our collective histories as well as those of my own ancestors to understand the food I teach about and cook. In this collection, I explore the food that shaped my identity, and the recipes that honor it, from an Ethiopian twist on an Ashkenazi standby to a soup that celebrates Black resilience.
