Women of the food industry speak out, addressing 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.
A food writer herself (and creator of Food52's annual Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks), Charlotte Druckman has enlisted the voices of women as varied as Nigella Lawson and Mashama Bailey; Julee Rosso and Helen Rosner; Ruby Tandoh and Virginia Willis; Andrea Nguyen and Deb Perelman; Sofia Perez and Chandra Ram; Diana Henry and Korsha Wilson.
Druckman's interactions with the 115 different women take the form of interviews, essays, questionnaires, and essays, giving the book a frank and exciting energy and allowing the reader to dip in for a quick read or to engage with a longer piece as desired. It's an eye-opening and largely uplifting experience that captures a significant moment in the food industry.
