Why We Cook. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. With an eye towards pointing the spotlight on women in the kitchen, whether they work in the industry or perfect the culinary craft at home, Why We Cook: Women on Food, Identity, and Connection looks to where cooking and feminism intersect. Featuring a compilation of interviews, profiles, recipes and more, from such luminaries as Ruth Reichl and food justice activist Leah Penniman, Why We Cook has something new and engaging on every page. These stories told by women for women will empower, engage and provide a flair to light the way for a more equitable, and tasty, future. Why We Cook is twenty-five dollars in hardback.
