Feed the Resistance

by Julia Turshen Author

More than a cookbook, this is a practical and inspiring handbook for political activism—with recipes. These dishes foster community and provide sustenance for the mind and soul, including a dozen of the healthy, affordable recipes Julia Turshen is known for, plus over 15 more recipes from a diverse range of celebrated chefs. Feed your entire organizing committe with Easy Posole, entice people to your letter-writing party with Pizza Frittata for a Crowd, and inspire energy in your canvassers with portable Chocolate Espresso Pie Bars. These diverse, delicious recipes honor a multitude of heritages, and are interspersed with lists, resources, and essays about the power of food in inspiring change and building movements. Make the grits that the Black Panther Party served to the kids who were being left hungry by the state. Learn about the struggles of creating anti-racist food spaces. Join the movement to use food to reduce prison recidivism. There is lots of good food for thought and for your belly in this little, nicely designed volume with its textured cover, a joy to read and use.
