Culinary Historians | All Stirred Up: Suffrage Cookbooks, Food and the Battle for Women's Right to Vote with Laura Kumin
Sunday December 6, 2020: 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote, All Stirred Up reveals a new side to the history of the suffrage movement.
Laura Kumin’s book acknowledges the familiar images of the women’s suffrage movement: picket signs, flowers and women in white marching through the streets, but demonstrates how much more there was to the movement. Ever courageous and creative, suffragists also carried their cause into America’s homes through cookbooks and food.
Laura Kumin spent decades as a lawyer before she became an author, teacher and cooking coach. Her specialty is combining history/culture and cooking, with an eye toward illuminating the little-known corners of a historical period or movement. Laura is the author of two books in that genre: All Stirred Up: Suffrage Cookbooks, Food, and the Battle for Women’s Right to Vote and The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating & Entertaining in Hamilton’s World.
