Our lady of perpetual hunger : a memoir

Donovan, Lisa 1977- (author.).

Summary: "Lisa Donovan is anyone's definition of a strong woman. She has built several lauded restaurants from the ground up, including Sean Brock's Husk empire; she raised two brilliant children with no money; she is a rape survivor; she is a profoundly talentedartist. But from her early childhood, she had been told at every juncture that she wasn't enough: she came from a poor Southern family that despised its own Zuni/Mexican roots and repeatedly silenced its women. And yet through their pain, the women of Donovan's family had found strength and passion through food. They expressed their love by making beautiful things in the kitchen, and they inspired Donovan's accomplished career. But the path never grew smooth. For all the accolades she received along the way, the restaurant industry seemed only to allow men to claim the top mantles. Donovan watched male chefs co-opt recipes, stories, and cultures that had been built by women until she had enough. OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HUNGER is Donovan's reclaiming of herown story and of the story of the women who came before her. It's also an unforgettable Southern journey of class, gender, and race as told through food"--
