Cooking up Community



    WHISKED is the result of my arts partnership with Molly Herrmann, chef and owner of Kitchen in the Market in the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis. The book was created for the Artists in the Kitchen exhibition.


    In recognition of the culinary and cultural contributions of our immigrant community all net proceeds from the sale of WHISKED will be donated to the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota.


    Thanks for your interest in WHISKED!

    The story of WHISKED!

    (It's a food/art adventure featuring chefs, poets, farmers, artists and more!)

    Whisked: Cooking up Community was created for the Artists in the Kitchen exhibition. Hosted by the Textile Center, the exhibition was a partnership with the Women Chefs and Restaurateurs 25th Anniversary National Conference and paired women artists and chefs (many of whom had never met) to envision an artwork together which the artist would then render in the medium of her choice.


    Chef Molly Herrmann and I had never crossed paths, but quickly felt an affinity as we discovered our shared passion for the myriad ways that cooking and eating brings people together. The preparation of food not only reflects our values, traditions, and incredible diversity; it’s also an expression of love. A community-created cookbook seemed the perfect way to bring this passion to life for the Artists in the Kitchen exhibition.


    WHISKED contains nearly 100 full color pages of recipes with photographs, food inspired poetry, essays by chefs and growers, and more. Everything from Jametta Rasperry's Fool Proof Greens to Dream of Wild Health's

    Pasdayapi Salad to Lynne Rossetto Kasper's 21st Century Mac and Cheese; there are mouthwatering wonders on every page.


    Molly and I would like to thank the incredible growers, chefs, poets, bakers and community members who shared their recipes, stories, photographs, and writing. Without them, this book would not have been possible.


    Finally, gratitude and respect to the passionate and hardworking women everywhere who make our world go round in delightful, delicious style.
