Lauri Pastrone, a volunteer with Women for Women International, presents their cookbook, Share: The Cookbook that Celebrates Our Common Humanity. This cookbook truly is a celebration, of the food that nourishes and sustains us, and of the women who have survived war and other conflicts. From a Burmese tomato fish curry to Kosovan sticky donuts, these diverse recipes come from homes in the far-flung regions where WfWI works as well as from the kitchens of famous chefs like Alice Waters and Jamie Oliver. Interspersed with the recipes are pieces from humanitarians such as Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as stories of survival and determination from the women who are part of WfWI's programs. Every page brims with celebration: pictures of the beaming survivors, delicious recipes, and ultimately the triumph of women who've gone from victimhood to independence.
Allison Arevalo and Erin Wade are the authors of The Mac + Cheese Cookbook: 50 Simple Recipes from Homeroom, America's Favorite Mac and Cheese Restaurant and co-owners of the popular Oakland restaurant, Homeroom. A tale of fate and dreams come true, Erin (a chef-turned-attorney-turned-chef-again) and Allison (taking a cross-country leap of faith to own a restaurant) met during a chance encounter in a cafe (our wonderful neighbor, Bittersweet). They began talking food and cooking and six months later they decided to leave their jobs and open Homeroom, a wildly successful restaurant dedicated to all the varieties of that ultimate comfort food: mac and cheese.
Emma Christensen is the author of True Brews: How to Craft Fermented Cider, Beer, Wine, Sake, Soda, Mead, Kefir, and Kombucha at Home. As a brewer addicted to the process and a long-time resident of small city apartments, Emma dispels the common misconceptions associated with brewing at home: fancy equipment, tons of space, stinky batches brewing in your bathtub. In True Brews, she shows you how to brew a wide variety of beverages from core equipment (little more than a stockpot, a bucket, and a spoon) and a few basic techniques. A recipe editor for the popular home cooking website, The Kitchn (www.kitchn.com), she is also a food writer and beer reviewer.
