“In this fascinating book — which includes recipes — Twitty explores, as he puts it, “the intersections between food and identity.”
— Washington Post

“Twitty makes the case that Blackness and Judaism coexist in beautiful harmony, and this is manifested in the foods and traditions from both cultures that Black Jews incorporate into their daily lives…Twitty wishes to start a conversation where people celebrate their differences and embrace commonalities. By drawing on personal narratives, his own and others’, and exploring different cultures, Twitty’s book offers important insight into the journeys of Black Jews.”
— Library Journal

“…a fascinating, cross-cultural smorgasbord grounded in the deep emotional role food plays in two influential American communities.”  
— Booklist

“Serving up a hefty helping of heart and wit, Twitty’s narrative is thrilling in its originality.”
— Publishers Weekly
