One of the most amazing books of my 2022 so far. This incredible collection of stories from Wāhine throughout Aotearoa makes me so proud to be part of a country which celebrates not only women, but also producers. Whether its via hunting, gathering, foraging, farming, cultivating, diving, fishing, distilling, fermenting, bartering, saving seeds and heritage foods, this book will become a classic in our food journey as a nation. We love seeing some of our local heros like Ruth Heath who, along with husband Jeremy, are the makers of The People’s Bread In fifty years time, the stories will be as relevant as they are now and looked on with pride by generations to come. Thanks Sophie for weaving these stories together.
