  • In this thought-provoking collection of essays, poems, & recipes, 40 women from around the globe ask that we take a fresh look at food & cooking. For these authors, food is a cultural declaration, an expression of hidden hungers, a symbol of our intimate connections to one another. Full of fine, expressive writing & delicious recipes, it's an anthology to relish. Some contributors include: Dorothy Allison, Maya Angelou, Julie Dash, Barbara Haber, Shirley Geoik-lin Lim, Pat Mora, Marge Piercy, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, & Gloria Wade-Gayles. ''These food-memoirs suggest that for women, the joy of cooking is often an alchemy that transforms ingredients of pain & loss.''
