    Michael Twitty is coming to Cliveden! 

    Critically acclaimed author, foodways historian, and the first African American winner of the James Beard Foundation’s Book of the Year award, Michael Twitty, will discuss his recent book and the patterns of enslavement connecting Philadelphia, Maryland, and Delaware.

    Mr. Twitty is a Judaic studies teacher in Washington, D.C. and has interests in food culture, food history, Jewish cultural issues, African American history and cultural politics. His blog, Afroculinaria, explores food’s role in the development and definition of African American civilization. We’re excited to have Mr. Twitty share his expertise on foodways and culture with us as we continue to explore the Chew family’s connections in Maryland. 
    The Cooking Gene will be held in our Carriage House, which is wheelchair accessible. Tickets for this Cliveden Conversation are $8 and can be purchased through the Eventbrite link listed above. Copies of Mr. Twitty’s award-winning book, The Cooking Gene, will be available for purchase on June 8th, courtesy of Big Blue Marble Bookstore. Be sure to purchase yours today!
