Two of the most distinct culinary cultures in the word today are those of the traditionals of the African Atlantic and global Jewish diaspora, and culinary historian, Michael W. Twitty, is fascinated by the marriage of the two. James Beard Award-winning author, Twitty explores how it is not just who makes the food, but how the food makes the people in his new book Koshersoul which examines the cultural crossroads of Jewish and African cuisines, issues of memory, identity and food. The lecture will be offered as in-person and online options. In-person and online lecture tickets are available for $25 per person (non-member tickets) and for $20 per person (member tickets). To purchase tickets and for more information, visit Smithsonian Associates. The seminar will be held via both platforms from 6:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
