by Judith Newton (Goodreads Author)
In this captivating memoir, Judith Newton shares the unforgettable story of a life on the front lines of activism and in the kitchen. During a difficult childhood, food and cooking were sources of comfort and emotional sustenance. And in the decades to come, through her marriage to a gay man, her discovery of feminism, her life in a commune, and her career as an academic, she used food to sustain personal and political relationships, mourn losses, and celebrate victories. As she earned her activist stripes in the 1960s and beyond, she also learned how food could ease tension, foster community, and build cross-racial ties.
By turns philosophical, moving, joyful, and wry, Tasting Home takes us on a remarkable journey through the cuisines, cultural spirit, and politics of the 1940s through the 2000s. Sprinkled with recipes and sensuous scenes of cooking and dining, it invites us to feel, in the tradition of Like Water for Chocolate, how deeply food is tied to identity, love, community, and political engagement.
