Pages Bookshop presents: Rage Baking: The Transformative Power of Flour, Fury and Women’s Voices

For decades, we’ve been taught to steer clear of politics at the dinner table, mostly so you don’t disown your Trump-voting family by dessert. But authors and bakers Kathy Gunst and Katherine Alford have a different approach, which is why their groundbreaking cookbook, Rage Baking: The Transformative Power of Flour, Fury and Women’s Voices, is the protest and pastry we need now. The book, which offers more than 50 recipes ranging from power-packed morning muffins to the perfect pie crust, is also sprinkled with essays, interviews, and poetry that address blood-boiling injustices and America’s widespread PTSD following the events of the 2016 election. For this special book event, Alford, who has spent more than 20 years at the Food Network, and Gunst, a James Beard Award-winning journalist who has authored 15 cookbooks and serves as NPR’s resident chef, will be joined by James Beard finalist Lisa Ludwinski, owner of Detroit’s Sister Pie, and April Anderson of Good Cakes and Bakes shop. The event will offer drinks and baked goods for sale; it’s suggested that folks arrive early, as this is a free event and it’s expected to fill up quickly.
