A Woman's Place

50 Women Who Made History in the Kitchen

By Deepi Ahluwalia and Stef Ferrari
Illustrated by Jessica Olah

  • Hardback
  • £20.00

A bite-sized feminist history of food, filled with illustrations, recipes, and illuminating tales of women who broke the mold to change the way we eat--and to change the world.

For centuries, professional cooking was a job exclusively for men. As a result, most histories of food and cooking, even today, are dominated by male achievements. But while historians weren't paying attention, women all over the world have been quietly changing the way we eat, cook, and dine out, inventing standardized measures, dishwashers, coffee filters, and even Champagne and buffalo wings!

In A WOMAN'S PLACE, these hidden figures of culinary history have the chance to tell their stories. Stories like that of Leah Chase, whose New Orleans restaurant sheltered and fed the civil rights movement, or Madhur Jaffrey, who became an accidental celebrity chef teaching English and American home cooks how to cook Indian food.

With lively illustrations depicting the women in scenes from their everyday lives, and stories ranging around the globe and across centuries, A WOMAN'S PLACE is the perfect gift for the foodie, history lover, or groundbreaking woman or girl in your life.
