    1. Ohhhhhh, I liked this book, but I had wanted to love it. (Julia Turshen ILU so much, please don't hate me if you read this.) As someone who's already pretty immersed in social justice, perhaps I'm not the target audience? But I was hoping for more actual connections between theory and food-related activity, and this ended up with mostly a lot of calls to action. The lists of ways to engage at the end were welcome, but bog standard, and in some situations unhelpful.Having worked at a lot of nonpr [...]


    2. I received this book as part of a giveaway and the following is my honest opinion.I found the book hard to read, not because of the writing, but because it talks about the world in which we live in today. I also found it comforting to think of people seeing food as a form of comforting those who are affected by the current political climate, as well as a way to contribute to the protests we all need to be making. A read for those who are involved and those who want to be.


    3. Time for an attitude shift: this book was uplifting, inspiring and left me eager to bake. Written by a cookbook author, activist and put-your-money-where-your-mouth-is super human, Julia Turshen compiled this book of inspiring essays and recipes by grass roots organizers working around the country to improve lives in their communities. The proceeds from the book go the ACLU. Check out Julia Turshen's Instagram for more inspiration.


    4. I found this surprisingly inspiring. It is a collection of essays and recipes by people in resistance movements. While some of the recipes seemed more complicated than I usually like, there were some simple and appealing ones, and I really appreciated the ethnic diversity included. My main take-away was that we all have something to contribute. Some people can write well, some can organize marches, some can knit pink pussy hats, some can cook or bake delicious and sustaining foods. I needed that [...]


    5. This is a book filled with good intentions and heart. Ms. Turshen offers stories of caring and activism sprinkled with recipes from many people from a spectrum of backgrounds. Some feed the activist at home or while at the march or waiting to speak to their elected officials. Other recipes can feed the room as you organize next steps, clarify intentions, and in other ways make the world a better place. The book did make me hungry for more specific ways to get involved that might spark movement f [...]


    6. This was a short, easy read. As someone who researches food access, I appreciated the combination of recipes (embodied experience) and essays reflecting on justice and equity. The essays are short and assume you have some knowledge of the people who wrote them. I didn’t, so I had to google. My favorite essay was written by Shakirah Simley, because she explicitly addresses anti-black racism and state violence at the intersection of food. Overall, good read. At some point, I’ll cook my way thr [...]


    7. I bought this book in late 2017 because the proceeds from its sale are donated to the ACLU. Initially, I found it distressing to read as it reminded me of all sorts of things I wanted to escape thinking about, but I kept reading it one recipe or entry at a time and eventually found it comforting and inspiring. I've made two of the recipes (so far), and they turned out great. So, there are many reasons to love this little book.


    8. I thought this was more about activism and organizing than recipes, so it's my fault for being disappointed. If you're looking for simple recipes that can easily scale up for a crowd, there are some useful ones here. And there are a few short essays about activism, but the bulk of the book is recipes.


    9. Food for the body as well as the fighting spiritI'm going to see how many copies of this I can give away as gifts this Christmas - portable support, both for feeding and giving sound advice!


    10. Not my type of bookSome big ideas are the main focus of this book but I feel like they’re not elaborated on enough. It’s a very quick read. I haven’t tried any of the recipes but some seemed very interesting.


    11. Interesting concept, appealing layout / formatting, and interesting / diverse voices contributing. Left me wanting a little more, though. And many of the recipes seemed highly impractical. I love the idea of this book more than the actual finished product.



    12. I can’t wait to get my hands on a physicalCopy of this book to add to my collection! The essays are well written and informative and inspiring! Can’t wait to try out a few of the recipes!



    13. It’s ok. Mix of essays about activism breaking up collections of recipes. The connection between the two aren’t very clear. Many recipes are provided by activists involved by causes.





    14. Loved this book. Great recipes with Turshen's usual practical brilliance and amazing additional voices. This book made me feel hopeful just as exhaustion set it.


    15. Some great ideas for activism, from how to get started to avoiding burnout. Recipes are interesting and fresh, with enough variety to please anyone.



    16. this is a great book. it tells how to organize a lead a group and also shows how to make good food. I look forward to some of these dishes.


    17. Great read! Filled with tons of great recipes and essays on why food matters and is connected to everything else we do! Highly recommend!
