Maybe it’s best to stay out of their kitchen.

Unconventional ladies and unconditionally good food. Part food recipe book, and part women’s history, Wild Women in the Kitchen features 101 recipes to complement the culinary contributions of famous women in history. With starter recipes curated specifically to each featured wild woman, this feminist recipe book replaces stereotypes with empowering context while also providing a felicitous food fix. Famous cooks Lynett Rohrer and Nicole Alper take you on a delicious journey through history in this easy to understand recipe book.
