Full of the photography and stories we have come to appreciate from the magazines Where Women Create and Where Women Cook, the book takes us into a party given by such favorites as Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman), Susan Branch, Molly Wizenberg (Orangette), Serena Thompson (The Farm Chicks), and Angie Dudley (Bakerella)and many other creative cooks.
The stories alone make it a book I will keep in the basket where warm and cozy books sit, waiting to be read on cold winter nights. However, the recipes which go along with the stories are tempting enough to get me off the sofa and into the kitchen.
I highly recommend this delightful book. It would make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves tying on an apron and spending an afternoon in the kitchen... or one who orders takeout but enjoys a good photo-filled story.
This book contains information about twenty eight food bloggers or chefs. Each woman is featured in her own section with tons of photographs but of her, her kitchen and her favorite tasty creations. You'll learn about how they create special parties, cozy teas and home style dinners. Not only are there tons of pictures of the actual food they've created, you'll be able to see the invitations, costumes, decorations, and food being prepared. The pages are laid out in an attractive scrapbook-like format with graphics, photographs, quotations, etc. Scattered throughout the layout are recipes that are best loved by each individual food blogger or chef.
There are a wide variety of different types of recipes included including beverages, condiments, dip, vegetables, desserts and main dishes. You'll find southern favorites like Grits Cakes and northern favorites like Pumpkin Doughnuts with Maple Butter Glaze. There are even recipes that use the slow cooker. You'll see how The Pioneer Woman makes a big summer meal and enjoys a night of fireworks. Bakerella shares how she creates amazing cake pops to help make any event worth celebrating.Read more ›
I was completely fascinated by the ladies and their stories in this beautifully designed and photographed keepsake book. I really enjoyed taking a peek into their interesting lives behind the scenes and learning a little more about them personally and what motivates them. Cheryl Day, owner of the Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, sums up the joy of celebrating when she says, "any event...could leave guests with special memories that would keep them talking for years." I savored every detail in Where Women Cook and I know I gained a lot from these talented and inspiring women from reading it!

The book is ok; has some good recipes but my expectations were different as I was thinking this would be extraordinary; it is not.Published on September 5, 2013 by A. Win
As I rated it "it's okay", I got it because I saw that Ree Drummond was in it, but I just knew of a couple of the women in it. Read morePublished on May 9, 2013 by Mary Helen Zuniga
I was expecting so much more based on the positive reviews here. While the layout of the book is nice, the stories and the recipes aren't particularly interesting. Read morePublished on March 21, 2012 by Bookie
What a disappointment! Boring book with everyday recipes. Cute photos, but it's supposed to be a cookbook. The magazine series of the same name is a disappointment as well... Read morePublished on February 29, 2012 by Suz
