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, 10 recipes inspired by their innovations, 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.
