The seven immigrant women in "Taste Makers" carved out careers in food at a time when it was not easy to do so. Even so, as Mayukh Sen writes, their work helped “popularize flavors that challenged the nation’s dominant palate."

For the seven immigrant women in this book, success as cooks almost always depended on winning over the predominately white and upper class food establishment. Such approval was not easily gained.

Happy book birthday to the brilliant, inspiring @senatormayukh, who was kind enough to chat w/ me about the Bay Area roots of his book on immigrant women and food, the limits of all this "representation matters" talk, and why he's so dang good at his job.
