Between them, Katherine Alford and Kathy Gunst have: run The New York Times’ 4-star kitchen, led a culinary team at Food Network, won James Beard Awards, and more.
But they’re not just firing up their ovens, they’re fired up—about the fragile state of women’s rights, about the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, about gender inequality, and more. They’ve channeled their ire in the new book, Rage Baking—The Transformative Power of Flour, Fury and Women’s Voices. Alford and Gunst join us, along with two of the book’s notable contributors, Vallery Lomas and Hali Bey Ramdene, for a talk about baking while furious—why we do it and what it brings us—with recipes, rants, and reflections from leading women bakers, chefs, writers, and activists, from Dorie Greenspan, Ruth Reichl, and Julia Turshen to Rebecca Traister, Cecile Richards, Ani DiFranco, and others. Passionate about baking? Passionate about change? Passion rules this talk.
A book signing follows the event.
