Wild Women Throw a Party

110 Original Recipes and Amazing Menus for Birthday Bashes, Power Showers, Poker Soirees, and Celebrations Galore

By Lynette Rohrer Shirk

Party Planning with Famous Feminists

Whoever said a woman’s place was in the home might have been right─these famous feminists can bring home the bacon, fry it up, and entertain all at the same time. Master chef and co-author Lynette Shirk returns to stir up a bestselling batch of stories, anecdotes, recipes, and food trivia inspired by influential women.

A woman’s place is where the party is. Get ready to party like it’s 1929 with Zelda Fitzgerald, drink cosmos like Sarah Jessica Parker, and have a picnic à la Mary Pickford. From Dollywood to Hollywood, these dazzling dames and sassy sauciers know how to sling spaghetti, toss any salad, and dish up the desserts. Part how-to, part history, and 100 percent hilarious, Wild Women Throw a Party includes 110 original recipes inspired by the stories of our favorite famous feminists.

What is feminism without a little fun? Who knew dangerous debutante Peggy Guggenheim, famous for her arty salons, was also a gifted gourmet? Or that when Eleanor Roosevelt wasn’t serving at soup kitchens, she was throwing and attending the most elegant “do’s” around. Wild Women Throw a Party explores women’s history, food trivia, and party planning ideas while asking, What is feminism? Who is a feminist? And where exactly do we find a woman’s place? An intersection of feminism and the home, this party planning guide includes fun ideas inspired by influential women, like:

  • Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede.
  • Joan Crawford’s Mother's Day "Mommy Dearest" Breakfast
  • Sophia Loren’s Better Than a Spaghetti Western Pasta Pajama Party
  • And more!

If you enjoy women’s history, or books like Rage BakingFree the TippleWomen's Libation!, or Empowdered Sugar, then you’ll love Wild Women Throw a Party.
