BY MICHAEL TWITTY

In this illuminating read, Michael picks his way through his African-American ancestry, mapping out the journey with food. Here, memoir blends into journal, history book and recipe collection. Michael shares his family tree and then builds a culinary equivalent of sorts, unearthing the roots of US cuisine and discovering the ways in which enslaved African communities and their American descendants have contributed to and shaped today’s food.
