At the Intersection of Cookbooks and Women’s Marches

At the Intersection of Cookbooks and Women’s Marches


The cover of this timely, political cookbook plays to my personal belief that baking is a release: Punch down that dough with force. The authors, Kathy Gunst, a cookbook writer, and Katherine Alford, a chef and writer, include views and recipes from more than 40 contributors, including Carla Hall, Genevieve Ko, Betty Fussell, Naomi Duguid and Jessica B. Harris. Clever chocolate-vanilla swirl cookies, a lovely Mexican chocolate-almond cake, upside-down cake with fresh pineapple, and chocolate pudding are some highlights, with photos of the sweets alternating with shots of women’s marches. To that point the writer Charlotte Druckman says to take your rage to the streets, not the kitchen. Some of the proceeds are donated to Emily’s List, appropriate enough since the organization’s name is an acronym: Early Money Is Like Yeast — it makes the dough rise.

“Rage Baking: The Transformative Power of Flour, Fury and Women’s Voices” by Kathy Gunst and Katherine Alford (Tiller Press, $24.99)
