Synopsis: Filled with over 50 classic recipes - from federal pancakes to sweet potato pie - and inspirational stories, this book should make you think twice about the food on your plate. It recounts how American women have gathered, cooked and prepared food for lovers, strangers and family through the ages. We find native women who pried nourishment from the wilderness, mothers who sold biscuits to buy their children's freedom, immigrant wives who cooked old foods in new homes to provide comfort. From church bake sales to to microwaving mums, this is a celebrations of women's lives, homes and communities.
