‘Koshersoul’ author and chef Michael Twitty coming to JCCSF

Sign up for Weekday J and get the latest on what's happening in the Jewish Bay Area.

Award-winning author Michael Twitty will be at the JCC of San Francisco in conversation with Maggid Jhos Singer at 7 p.m. Aug. 15 to talk about his new book, “Koshersoul: The Faith and Food Journey of an African American Jew.”

“Koshersoul” is a meditation on the intertwining of the two diasporic food cultures Twitty identifies with, African and Jewish. His last book, “The Cooking Gene,” won a James Beard Award. Twitty has visited the Bay Area before, both to speak and to participate in Be’chol Lashon’s camp for Jews of color.
