This book is important. These stories are joyous. This book is delicious. These recipes work. This book celebrates our imperfect union. And the many peoples who claim our nation. In this moment of doubt and turmoil, America needs the brilliance and brio of the women of La Cocina. And American needs that recipe for bai sach chrouk on page 191. --John T. Edge There are few places, in popular food, where theoretical ideas of equity meet the formidable reality of actually practicing equity. La Cocina is this place and this new book reflects the hard joys and painful rewards necessary to make it happen. . --Tunde Wey This book is for those of us who've watched someone they love put everything they have into a business-the moms, aunties, sister-girls, and grandmas who never seem to stop moving-and while their work is far from done, for a moment, while turning these pages, you get to bask in the glory of their commitment and dedication come to life. --Osayi Endolyn It can be easy, these days, to feel overwhelmed and exhausted and defeated by the problems of the world. Food has always been the balm to those emotions for me; it allows us to come together and be nourished, body and soul. The La Cocina cookbook goes one step further: it provides the fodder--through delicious recipes--for the nourishing; but it also provides the inspiration, through the incredible stories of the women who make up the program, to keep fighting the good fight. These pages will remind you of the power of food, and the incredible impact it can have on creating a better future for all. --Ashley Christensen La Cocina is food at its finest: inspiring, instructional, political, and delicious. This book brings the vitality of La Cocina and its mujeres through wonderful recipes--and even better stories. --Gustavo Arellano This book is a must-have! These women will inspire you, not only to cook their great recipes, but to follow your own dreams despite the adversities we all face. They shine a very bright light on life and knowing their stories makes the world a better place. --Traci Desjardins
