How can we make the culinary industry more inclusive and accessible? How can we work together to overcome gender and racial discrimination in the industry? These questions are important to best-selling cookbook author and food writer Julia Turshen. In this episode, Turshen shares her approach to cookbook writing and how she achieves her accessible style, including Simply Julia released in March 2020. She also shares the origins of her on-going initiative Equity at the Table, a digital directory that supports women of color, LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people in the food industry.
