    Laura Kumin
    A former lawyer in Washington, DC, Laura Kumin traded torts for tarts, believing in the power of food to bring people together. For her, cooking is one of life’s great joys and sharing food an even greater pleasure. She has written about food for The Washington Post, USA Today, Huffington Post and the Jewish Food Experience and maintains the blog Mother Would Know, all with the goal to help those who appreciate home cooking and want to do more of it. For All Stirred Up! Kumin put her legal research skills to use, digging deep into archives at the Library of Congress and online to uncover stories of the suffragists and the cookbooks they published to win hearts and stomachs. All Stirred Up! : Suffrage Cookbooks, Food, and the Battle for Women's Right to Vote is available as a print and e-book. Order it through or from Amazon and Laura will get a small commission on the sale. Visit Laura’s website to learn more:
