Over the next several weeks, we’ll be looking back in the Dispatches archives to replay a selection of notable interviews. In this episode, first aired in March 2019, host Brady Crytzer interviews writer, culinary historian, and educator Michael W. Twitty, about the legacy and influence of enslaved Africans on American and world culture and cuisine. He is the author of The Cooking Gene, published by HarperCollins/Amistad, which won both the 2018 James Beard Foundation Book of the Year Award as well as the James Beard Foundation award in category for writing.
