“On the most basic level, resistance, just like any other active thing, needs to be fed in order to sustain,” Julia Turshen writes in her new cookbook,Feed the Resistance: Recipes and Ideas for Getting Involved (Chronicle Books, October 3, 2017). And every page does just that, with easy recipes for busy activists (Greek chickpea salad), dishes for crowds (tikka masala mac & cheese), and portable snacks and baked goods (persistence biscuits, chocolate espresso pie bars) for protesting fuel and fundraisers. Sandwiched in between are poignant essays (How Food Can Be a Platform for Activism) and tips for engaging, so you can raise your fork and feel good about it.
