Women on Food
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.
