Michael Twitty Takes Kosher Soul Food From Toronto to NYC

We had the pleasure of meeting kosher/soul maven Michael Twitty at Toronto’s Ashkenaz festival, where he was a panelist at a talk we moderated.

Now, he’ll be joining other culinary stars at New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage for a new talk: A Gefilte Gumbo: A delicious tale of Jewish, African-American and Southern flavors, on Sunday, September 25.

More of the Week’s Dish:

Sharing the dias will be Kat Romanow of the Museum of Jewish Montreal; Professor Ted Merwin, author of “Pastrami on Rye,” NYU Professor Hasia Diner and Chicago Reader Deputy Editor Robin Amer.

“It’s everything from kosherized Creole to breaking the Yom Kippur fast with pork roast and ice cold Coke,” promises organizer Jayne Cohen.
