THE IRRITABLE WORKING WOMAN'S COOKBOOK
188 pages, W: 152mm x H: 229mm
The Irritable Working Woman’s Cookbook offers a fresh approach to a sometimes stale topic. These are recipes for women who work, who may or may not love their jobs, and who may not always be in the best humour at the end of the day. The book takes a disrespectful look at the powers governing today’s working woman, and offers recipes that are easy and nourishing or complicated and time-consuming, aiming to take her mind off her working woes. The book is also anecdotal, sharing cooking customs from the author’s homesick Scottish granny to her resourceful Lithuanian grandmother.
There are recipes for traditional Jewish specialities, common-sense cooking, new-age food for novices, classic desserts and cakes that will make you turn cartwheels. Along the way Shea Albert divulges her own journey to gourmet graduation, as well as the most outstanding cooking and people of her life’s experience.
Sex and cooking only work when you are in the mood!
Why is this cookbook different from all other cookbooks? Because it is aimed at the one overlooked population in our global community – irritable working women. They cook, but on occasion without the customary good grace implied in most cookbooks. There are cookbooks for nail-biting newlyweds, raising your children to win the Nobel Prize, for religious purists, vegetarians and vegans. But these worthy tomes fail to address the humour of the people who have to do the work.
The Irritable Working Woman’s Cookbook offers a fresh approach to a sometimes stale topic.
Her wickedly funny and generously anecdotal cookbook will be a delicious and delightful treat for irritable working women everywhere.
