Rethinking My Northern California Culinary Landscape

I’m honored to be a contributor to Comestible: Issue 7. L.M. and I wrote complimentary essays on our personal culinary landscapes: the foods we grew up with, the early lessons about gender we learned through food, and the ways that we’ve re-examined, rejected or reclaimed our hometown dishes. I talk about my childhood, carob chips and Tofu Pups, the 1970s feminist publication “Country Women” and the back-to-the-land movement in northern California–both what it accomplished and whom it failed.

You can find Comestible Journal at many a fine independent bookstore, or on their website.
