Zoom with a View
Jun 9 @ 7:00 PM

Join the Chicago Region for ZOOM WITH A VIEW, a virtual celebration of their annual Lunch With a View event. This year’s special guest is chef, culinary historian and award-winning food writer Michael Twitty. His latest release, The Cooking Gene, traced his ancestry through food from Africa to America and from slavery to freedom. He won the 2018 James Beard Award for best writing as well as book of the year, making him the first Black author so awarded. Kosher Soul, his follow up to The Cooking Gene, will be out in 2022, focusing on his own Jewish roots and his blending of Jewish and Black food traditions.

Longtime ORTist and Book Club Extraordinaire, Judy will lead the conversation with Michael Twitty.
