Description: This text paints an extraordinary picture of food and ritual in Bengal, which reveals not only a rich culinary culture but also a social structure in which certain foods are forbidden. It combines social critique with the intimacy of memoir to evoke a land where food and ritual shape daily life.

Bell Hooks was born Gloria Watkins on September 25, 1952. She grew up in a small Southern community that gave her a sense of belonging as well as a sense of racial separation. She has degrees from Stanford University, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. She has served as a noted activist and social critic and has taught at numerous colleges. Hooks uses her great-grandmother's name to write under as a tribute to her ancestors. Hooks writes daring and controversial works that explore African-American female identities. In works such as Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism and Talking Back: Thinking Feminist, Thinking Black, she points out how feminism works for and against black women. Oppressed since slavery, black women must overcome the dual odds of race and gender discrimination to come to terms with equality and self-worth.Chitrita Banerji is author of Life and Food in Bengal and Bengali Cooking: Seasons and Festivals, as well as numerous articles in The Boston Globe, Granta, Gastronomica, The Phoenix, Boston Magazine, Calyx and Petits Propos Culinaires (London).
