More than 100 female restaurant owners, food writers, activists, and chefs have participated in this exploration of the changing world of food and the impact they are having in it.

Instigated and beautifully illustrated by Lindsay Gardner, whose work has appeared in many national publications, Why We Cook offers fresh energy and insight, along with perspectives from contributors as varied as Amanda Cohen, Carla Hall, Jessica B. Harris, Rachel Khong, Anita Lo, Ruth Reichl, and Ana Roš. (We could have offered you three times as many bold-face names.)

In addition to these famous women, there are essays, recipes, and menus from local heroes, movers, and shakers, including a documentary filmmaker from Virginia, a Filipino food truck owner in Wisconsin, a food historian from California, a soba maker from Washington, and a farmer from Utah.

Anyone looking for inspiration, insight, and wide-open point-off-view will find them all in this book.

Hardcover. Color illustrations throughout.
