Gathering around a table abundant with food, great things can happen from sharing to activating ideas. We love this book from favorite cookbook author Julia Turshen. She has created a practical and inspiring handbook for political activism—with recipes.
As the millions who marched in January 2017 demonstrated, activism is the new normal and we're not close to finished. When people search for ways to resist injustice and express support for civil rights, environmental protections, and more, they begin by gathering around the table to talk and plan.
These dishes foster community and provide sustenance for the mind and soul, including a dozen of the healthy, affordable recipes that Turshen is known for, plus over 15 more recipes from a diverse range of celebrated chefs.
With stimulating lists, extensive resources, and essays from activists in the worlds of food, politics, and social causes, Feed the Resistance is a must have handbook for anyone hoping to make a difference. It is a great way to gather with your bubble; when time allows, you can expand that table and the ideas to resist! It all starts at the table.
