A provocative collection of food’s most distinctive female voices and subjects

Women on Food unites the radical, diverging female voices of
the food industry in this urgent collection of essays, interviews,
questionnaires, illustrations, quotes, and ephemera. Edited by Charlotte
Druckman and written by esteemed food journalists and thinkers,
including Soleil Ho, Nigella Lawson, Diana Henry, Carla Hall, Helen
Rosner, Rachael Ray, and many others, this compilation illuminates the
notable and varied women who make up the food world. Exploring everyday
issues from the #MeToo movement, the gender pay gap, and the
underrepresentation of women of color in leadership, to cultural trends
including reality shows, the intersection of fashion and food, and the
evolution of food writing in the last few decades, Women on Food brings together food’s most vital female voices.

Publisher Review

Druckman presents an entertaining and thought-provoking "variety show" of previously unpublished essays, interviews, and ephemera from women working in the world of food...This celebration of women's influence in the industry and primer on the discrimination they still face will satisfy foodies and feminists alike.--Publishers Weekly "A potent reminder of just how much women shape and are shaped by the culture of food."--The New York Times "It's sharp, witty, entertaining and has insights from a host of brilliant food writers."--The Guardian "a thought-provoking and sometimes anger-inducing tome that should be required reading for anyone working in the restaurant business, or anyone interested in the gender politics of food."--The Times
