Staff Reviews


This book does what it says on the tin: it's a random selection (in the best possible sense) of essays, interviews, and journalism about women, and food. The writing styles vary widely, the opinions are strong, and the authors often simply disagree with each other, something which is unfortunately surprising. It's the perfect book to pick up and read a chunk of when you have ten minutes to get some reading in. It's thoroughly delightful, and yes, you *will* get hungry while reading it.

Description


Women on Food unites the radical, diverging female voices of the food industry in this urgent, moving, and often humorous collection of essays, interviews, questionnaires, illustrations, quotes, and ephemera.
 
Edited by Charlotte Druckman and featuring esteemed food journalists and thinkers, including Soleil Ho, Nigella Lawson, Diana Henry, Carla Hall, Samin Nosrat, Rachael Ray, and many others, this compilation illuminates the notable and varied women who make up the food world. Exploring issues from the #MeToo movement, gender bias in division of labor and the workplace, and the underrepresentation of women of color in leadership, to cultural trends including food and travel shows, the intersection of fashion and food, and the evolution of food writing in the last few decades, Women on Food brings together food’s most vital female voices.
