Food blogger Michael W. Twitty will lead a workshop about how to write your own personal food memoirs and how to use this as a means of opening the mouths and minds of learners in your community, from teenagers to seniors.  This is an idea take-away class!  Drawing on his unique insider/outsider approach to Jewish food, Michael will read examples from some of his essays and will encourage participants to share a paragraph of their own personal food writing.
