A funny cookbook with stories for the wild woman who loves real food.
When stereotypes abound, it can be easy to forget that women have been cooking up a storm for quite some time. Catherine de'Medici was the Johnny Appleseed of Italian food. Nancy Hart shot a Royalist soldier for barging in and interrupting dinner.
Women who risk it all really can take the heat. Maybe it's best to stay out of their kitchen. Unconventional ladies and unconditionally good food.
Part food recipe book, and part women's history, Wild Women in the Kitchen features 101 recipes to complement the culinary contributions of famous women in history. With starter recipes curated specifically to each featured wild woman, this feminist recipe book replaces stereotypes with empowering context while also providing a felicitous food fix.
